How to Subtract a Two Digit from Three Digit Value? When you are teaching your children about subtraction, you need to be extra careful when you are subtracting a 2-digit number from a 3-digit one. Your child must know about the concept of place values expertly. Since we will place the value ones and tens of the 2-digit value below of those from the 3-digit ones. Take for example the difference between 231 and 26. In these situations you need to focus on the numbers you need to borrow. For instance, we needed to borrow from 3, since one is less than 6. Keep practicing and the kids will get the hang of it. A collection of worksheets and lessons that shows students how to find the difference between a three and two digit value.
