 # Practise Column Subtraction: 5-Digit Numbers

In this worksheet, students practise subtracting one five-digit number from another using columns. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Carry Out Calculations Using Order of Operations

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will use column subtraction to subtract 5 digit numbers.

For Example:

Subtract the numbers, remembering to regroup if needed.

1. Begin with the ones column. Regroup so the 5 in the tens column becomes 4 and the 3 in the ones column becomes 13, so 13 - 4 = 9.

2. Moving to the tens column, regroup the 6 in the hundreds column to 5 and the 4 in the tens column to 14, so 14 - 7 = 7.

3. Next look at the hundreds column. Regroup so that the 3 in the thousands column becomes a 2 and the 5 in the hundreds column is 15, so 15 - 9 = 6.

4. Subtract the thousands, 2 -1 = 1.

5. Subtract the ten thousands, so 5 - 2 = 3. Subtract the numbers.

• Question 1

Subtract the numbers.

82382 – 23620 = ___________

58762
EDDIE SAYS
1. Begin with the ones column, 2 - 0 = 2. 2. Moving to the tens column, 8 - 2 = 6. 3. Next look at the hundreds column. Regroup so that the 2 in the thousands column becomes a 1 and the 3 in the hundreds column is 13, so 13 - 6 = 7. 4. Now look at the thousands column. Regroup so the 8 in the ten thousands column becomes 7 and the 1 in the thousands becomes 11, so 11 - 3 = 8. 5. Subtract the ten thousands, so 7 - 2 = 5. Answer: 58762
• Question 2

Subtract the numbers.

37647 – 34597 = ___________

3050
EDDIE SAYS
1. Begin with the ones column, 7 - 7 = 0. 2. Moving to the tens column, regroup and the 6 in the hundreds column becomes a 5, while the 4 in the tens column becomes a 14. Subtract 14 - 9 = 5. 3. Next look at the hundreds column and subtract, 5 - 5 = 0. 4. Now look at the thousands column and subtract 7 - 4 = 3. 5. Subtract the ten thousands, so 3 -3 = 0. Answer: 3050
• Question 3

Subtract the numbers.

98358 – 68214 = ___________

30144
EDDIE SAYS
1. Begin with the ones column, 8 - 4 = 4. 2. Moving to the tens column, 5 - 1 = 4. 3. Next look at the hundreds column, 3 - 2 = 1. 4. Now look at the thousands column, 8 - 8 = 0. 5. Lastly, subtract the ten thousands, 9 - 6 = 3 Answer: 30144
• Question 4

Subtract the numbers.

81382 – 62986 = ___________

18396
EDDIE SAYS
1. Begin with the ones column by regrouping so the 8 in the tens column becomes a 7 and the 2 in the ones column becomes a 12. Subtract 12 - 6 = 6. 2. Moving to the tens column, regroup so the 3 in the hundreds column becomes a 2 and the 7 in the tens column becomes 17. Subtract 17 - 8 = 9. 3. Next look at the hundreds column. Regroup so that the 1 in the thousands column becomes a 0 and the 2 in the hundreds column is 12, so 12 - 9 = 3. 4. Now look at the thousands column. Regroup so the 8 in the ten thousands column becomes 7 and the 0 in the thousands column becomes 10, so 10 - 2 = 8. 5. Subtract the ten thousands, so 7 - 6 = 1. Answer: 18396
• Question 5
