Therefore, by subtracting 22.04 from 45.08 we get 23.04.

**Example 2.
**Subtract 15.871 from 22.653

**Solution:**

Start subtracting from right to left 3-1=2.

As 7 >5, So you must regroup. Take 1 from 6 then 6 becomes 5. Add 10 to 5, So 5 becomes 15. 15-7=8.

As 8 >5, So you must regroup. Take 1 from 2 then 2 becomes 1. Add 10 to 5, So 5 becomes 15. 15-8=7.

As 5>2, So you must regroup. Take 1 from 2 then 2 becomes 1. Add 10 to 1, So 1 becomes 11. 11-5=6.

1-1=0.

Therefore, by subtracting 15.871 from 22.653 we get 6.782.

**Example 3.
**Subtract 16.96 from 38.756 and find the difference?
