To calculate: The difference,

354 48_

Explanation

Given information:

354 48_

Formula used:

Steps for subtracting a whole number,

Step 1: Line up the place values by writing the whole numbers in columns - units, tens, hundreds, thousands, and so on.

Step 2: Starting from the right with the units column, subtract the digits in each column.

Step 3: A digit must be borrowed from the column to the left of the working column, if the column cannot be subtracted.

Calculation:

To subtract the given numbers, align the numbers as,

354 48_

Check the units column, 8 cannot be subtracted from 4.

So, borrow 10 from the tens column.

Borrowing 10 from the tens column reduces 5 to 4 and increases 4 in the units column to 14.

Now, subtract 8 from 14.

148=6

Write, 6 under the units column
