The lefttoright subtraction method
The lefttoright subtraction method is a twostep process. In the example 936  581, the number to be subtracted is first written in an expanded form: 500+80+1. Each of the parts is then subtracted from the starting number. In our example 936500=436, 43680=356 and finally 3561=355.
In the Everyday Mathematics curriculum the lefttoright subtraction method is one of the algorithms for subtraction.
