##### Two (2) Digit Subtraction Without Regrouping (Borrowing)

Hey Kids, | |

We know that adding two numbers is easy in mathematics. But in this page, you will learn that subtracting is easy too. | |

Let's see the subtraction of 2 two-digit numbers without regrouping (borrowing). | |

Arrange the numbers as below (one below the other), before subtracting. | |

The digits in the rightmost column of the math problem should be subtracted first. So let us do for the two numbers in the 'ones' first. | |

Subtracting 2 from 4, we get 2. Now, write the answer 2 in the 'ones' column. | |

Now, let's do the same for the 'tens' digits. 4-1=3. Again, write 3 in 'tens' column. | |

So, | |

The answer is 32. | |

Now, subtraction without regrouping (borrowing) is simple. Isn't it? | |
