Example 1:
Subtract Rs. 58.05 from Rs 175.75
Solution:
Method 1 (with conversion into paise):
Rs. 175.75 = 175.75×100 = 17575paise
Rs. 58.05 = 58.05×100 = 5805 paise
17  5  7  5 Paise
– 5  8  0   5 Paise
11  7   7   0  Paise
Therefore, difference of Rs. 58.05 from Rs. 175.75 = 12770 Paise = Rs. 117.70.

1  7  5  .   7  5
–   5  8 .    0  5
1 1  7    .    7    0
75 paise – 05 paise = 70 paise
Rs. 175 – Rs. 58 = Rs. 117
Therefore, the difference of Rs. 175.75 – Rs. 58.05 = Rs. 117.70
