## Subtraction of Unlike Decimals : Solved Examples

 Convert Unlike Decimals to Like Decimals Addition of Unlike Decimals Subtraction of Unlike Decimals

 Find difference of 327.243 and 652.5 Solution: Subtraction proceeds in the following steps: Step 1: Convert Unlike Decimal to like decimal Decimal 327.243 and 652.5 are Unlike Decimals, because: 327.243 have three decimal places i.e. digit 2, 4 and 3 652.5 have only one decimal place i.e. digit 5 Now, 652.5 can be converted into a decimal having two decimal places i.e. by adding 0(Zero) at its hundredths and thousandths place. And after conversion we get; 652.500 having two decimal places i.e. digit 5, 0 and 0 Now, 327.243 and 652.500 are like Decimals because both have similar decimal places Step 2: Write minuend and subtrahend in such a way that decimal point and digit of same place values should be at same vertical order or same place value   652.500 - 327.243 Step 3: Do the subtraction as in case of whole numbers and we get: Subtraction of Digits at thousandths place and we get: 0 - 3 = ??? Here we can see that 0 is less than 3, so we will carry 1 from tenths digit (because digit at hundredths place is also 0) and we get; Digit 9 at hundredths place and digit 10 at thousand place (as shown above), so the subtraction will be: 10 - 3 = 7 7 is written in the result at same place value. Subtraction of Digits at hundredths place and we get: Now digit at hundredths place is 9 (as shown above) and its subtraction will be: 9 - 4 = 5 5 is written in the result at same place value. Subtraction of Digits at tenths place. Now digit at tenths place is 4 (as shown above) and its subtraction will be: 4 - 2 = 2 2 is written in the result at same place value. Subtraction of Digits at ones place 2 - 7 = ??? Here we can see that 2 is less than 7, so we will carry 1 from tens digit and we get digit 12 at ones place (as shown above), so the subtraction will be: 12 - 7 = 5 5 is written in the result at same place value. Subtraction of Digits at tens place. Now digit at tens place is 4 (as shown above) and its subtraction will be: 4 - 2 = 2 2 is written in the result at same place value. Subtraction of Digits at hundreds place. 6 - 3 = 3 3 is written in the result at same place value. Step 4: Decimal Point of given decimals and answer should be at same vertical order or at same place.
