Find the result of the following subtraction: 6,882 subtract 4,357.
00:00:13.398 --> 00:00:22.628
In this question, we have to use the standard written method to subtract 4,357 from 6,882.
00:00:23.828 --> 00:00:33.738
Both of our numbers have four digits, which means they have a thousands digit, a hundreds digit, a tens digit, and a ones digit.
00:00:34.628 --> 00:00:38.758
And we always start by subtracting in the ones column first.
00:00:39.468 --> 00:00:45.448
We could use a place value table and counters to help us model the number we’re subtracting from.
00:00:46.648 --> 00:00:54.158
6,882 has six 1,000s, eight 100s, eight 10s, and two ones.
00:00:54.868 --> 00:00:57.098
And we’re going to subtract the ones first.
00:00:58.708 --> 00:01:01.658
We’ve got two ones, and we need to subtract seven.
00:01:02.428 --> 00:01:06.448
This is a problem because two is less than seven.
00:01:07.198 --> 00:01:10.148
We don’t have enough ones to subtract seven from.
00:01:11.078 --> 00:01:13.148
We’re going to need to regroup.
00:01:14.118 --> 00:01:19.628
We need to take one of our tens and exchange it for 10 ones.
00:01:20.248 --> 00:01:27.508
Now that we’ve got 12 ones, we can subtract seven, which leaves us with five ones.
00:01:28.358 --> 00:01:30.888
Now we can subtract in the tens place.
00:01:31.858 --> 00:01:35.538
We’ve got seven 10s, and we need to subtract five.
00:01:36.318 --> 00:01:40.338
Seven 10s take away five 10s leaves us with two 10s.
00:01:41.318 --> 00:01:43.168
Now we move into the hundreds place.
00:01:43.948 --> 00:01:47.188
What is eight 100s take away three 100s?
00:01:48.328 --> 00:01:50.668
We’ve got five 100s left.
00:01:51.398 --> 00:01:53.248
Eight take away three is five.
00:01:54.168 --> 00:01:56.578
Now what we need to do is subtract the thousands.
00:01:56.938 --> 00:02:02.988
We’ve got six 1,000s, and we need to take away four, which leaves us with two 1,000s.
00:02:03.978 --> 00:02:14.918
6,882 subtract 4,357 is 2,525.
