SOLUTION STEPS

The Last Step:

163s place:

Subtract the numbers in the 163s place.

116016 = 116

Write 1 to the 163s place.

All Steps:

160s place:

Subtract the numbers in the 160s place.

516316 = 216

Write 2 to the 160s place.

161s place:

B < F

Borrow 1 from the 162s place.

162s place:

After borrowing from the 162s place the number in the 162s place reduces by 1 and and becomes 9

A16116 = 916

161s place:

Add 1016 to the 161s place.

B16 + 1016 = 1B16

161s place:

Subtract the numbers in the 161s place.

1B16F16 = C16

Write C to the 161s place.

162s place:

9 < C

Borrow 1 from the 163s place.

163s place:

After borrowing from the 163s place the number in the 163s place reduces by 1 and and becomes 1

216116 = 116

162s place:

Add 1016 to the 162s place.

916 + 1016 = 1916

162s place:

Subtract the numbers in the 162s place.

1916C16 = D16

## INFORMATION

### HEXADECIMAL SUBTRACTION

To subtract an hexadecimal number from another you can follow the steps below.

• 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 1016 to one digit right and move to that digit.

• Continue regrouping and adding 1016 to the lower digit until the digit to be subtracted is reached.

• Do the subtraction and move one digit left.
