Double Digit Subtraction with Regrouping (Borrowing)

Double Digit Subtraction with Regrouping (Borrowing)

Double-digit subtraction with regrouping (or borrowing) is more complex than double-digit subtraction without regrouping. In this kind of subtraction problem, at least one of the digits in the number you are subtracting from is smaller than the digit being subtracted. This means you’ll need to “borrow” from the next higher place value to make the subtraction possible.

Being able to properly subtract with regrouping now will help your student solve more difficult math problems later. It lays the foundation for subtracting larger numbers and for understanding more advanced concepts like negative numbers. Your student should understand subtraction without regrouping before attempting these problems. Check out our worksheets for double digit addition with regrouping too!
