Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, you must subtract sums of money using column subtraction with borrowing.



Subtract the following

£ 9.86 - £ 8.90



We set out a subtraction in columns, remembering to borrow if necessary.


Note:  Remember, we can't take 9 away from 8, so we have to 'borrow' from the next column.  The 8 (80) becomes 18 (180)

Remember, there might be more than one way to write a correct answer when you calculate with money.

£0.96 = 96pence
