Write 1 to the 24s place.

All Steps:

20s place:

Subtract the numbers in the 20s place.

10 = 1

Write 1 to the 20s place.

21s place:

0 < 1

Borrow 1 from the 22s place.

22s place:

We can't regroup from 0.

23s place:

Borrow 1 from 1

11 = 0

22s place:

Add 2 to the 22s place.

0 + 2 = 2

## INFORMATION

### BINARY SUBTRACTION

Follow the steps below in binary subtraction.

• Write the numbers so that the same places are aligned in the same column.

• Start subtracting numbers from the right-most digit and each time move one digit to the left.

• In any digit, if the number on top is greater than or equal to the number on bottom, do the subtraction and write the result to the same place.

• If the number on top is smaller than the number on bottom, move left until a non-zero number is reached on top.

• Borrow 1 from the first non-zero number and reduce it by 1.

• Add 2 to one digit right and move to that digit.

• Continue regrouping and adding 2 to the lower digit until the digit to be subtracted is reached.

• Do the subtraction and move one digit left.

### WHAT IS BINARY SUBTRACTION CALCULATOR?
