00:00:01.650 --> 00:00:05.990
You can regroup 100 to help you solve subtraction problems.
00:00:06.920 --> 00:00:10.600
Find 712 take away 460.
00:00:11.890 --> 00:00:16.330
In this problem, we’re going to need to regroup 100 to help us find the answer.
00:00:17.030 --> 00:00:19.850
We’ll see why we need to do this when we get there.
00:00:20.150 --> 00:00:23.190
But to begin with, let’s subtract the ones.
00:00:23.620 --> 00:00:29.410
712 contains two ones, and we need to subtract zero ones.
00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:33.900
Two take away zero equals two.
00:00:34.670 --> 00:00:36.950
So, our answer has two ones.
00:00:37.710 --> 00:00:40.130
Next, we need to subtract the tens.
00:00:40.720 --> 00:00:46.700
712 has one 10, and we need to subtract six tens.
00:00:47.770 --> 00:00:49.690
But six is larger than one.
00:00:49.960 --> 00:00:52.900
How can we take away six tens from one 10?
00:00:53.930 --> 00:01:00.930
Well, we know we definitely can subtract six tens because the number we’re subtracting from is 712.
00:01:01.370 --> 00:01:05.680
There are plenty of tens in 712 to take six tens from.
00:01:06.320 --> 00:01:18.140
It’s just that at the moment there aren’t enough tens in the tens column, so we need to regroup our number slightly so that there are enough tens in the tens column to take away six tens from.
00:01:18.790 --> 00:01:26.740
And the way to do this is to take one of our one hundreds, we’ve got seven of those, and to regroup it into tens.
00:01:27.550 --> 00:01:29.090
Let’s just go through what this means.
00:01:30.350 --> 00:01:32.960
Here’s what one of our 100s looks like.
00:01:33.440 --> 00:01:36.390
Remember, we’ve got seven of these in 712.
00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:44.060
Now, if we take one of our 100s and regroup it into tens, we’ll have 10 tens.
00:01:44.550 --> 00:01:47.010
Both of these are worth exactly the same amount.
00:01:47.010 --> 00:01:49.140
We’ve just grouped them in a different way.
00:01:49.940 --> 00:01:58.180
By regrouping one of our hundreds, instead of having seven hundreds, we can cross this through because we now have six hundreds.
00:01:58.920 --> 00:02:02.330
And we’ve swapped our 100 for 10 tens.
00:02:02.690 --> 00:02:06.370
So, in our tens column, we now have 11 tens.
00:02:06.370 --> 00:02:09.970
We already had one 10, and now we have an extra 10 tens.
00:02:10.370 --> 00:02:12.260
To show that we have 11 tens.
00:02:12.530 --> 00:02:15.530
We can write a one next to the one we already had.
00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:19.680
The little one we’ve written represents 10 more tens.
00:02:20.200 --> 00:02:22.680
Now, it might look like we’ve changed the number on the top.
00:02:22.970 --> 00:02:29.980
Instead of 712, we now have six hundreds, 11 tens, and two ones.
00:02:30.460 --> 00:02:37.960
But if we work it out, we can see that six hundreds, 11 tens and two ones is exactly the same as 712.
00:02:38.500 --> 00:02:40.950
All we’ve done is regroup 100.
00:02:41.740 --> 00:02:44.200
And this will now help us to find the answer.
00:02:44.910 --> 00:02:49.010
We can now subtract six tens from our 11 tens.
00:02:49.520 --> 00:02:53.330
11 take away six leaves us with five tens.
00:02:54.320 --> 00:02:56.810
Finally, we can subtract the hundreds digits.
00:02:57.320 --> 00:03:00.960
And remember, we’re not subtracting 400 from 700.
00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:06.080
By regrouping 100, we now only have six hundreds in this column.
00:03:06.820 --> 00:03:11.220
600 take away 400 leaves us with 200.
00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:24.710
We worked through the subtraction column by column, but because we were unable to take the number of tens that we wanted to take away, we had to regroup 100 to help us to continue to work out the subtraction.
00:03:25.370 --> 00:03:28.350
100 is the same as 10 tens.
00:03:28.870 --> 00:03:34.890
And by swapping one of our hundreds for 10 tens, we could then subtract the number of tens that we needed to.
00:03:35.800 --> 00:03:42.310
712 take away 460 equals 252.
