Let’s look at some of the word problems related to subtracting money. We solved the problems with both methods, ie with conversion to Paise and without conversion to Paise. To solve a word problem, we need to carefully read each word and carefully choose numbers from the question to solve it.

Elaborated examples for subtracting money:

1. Subtract Rs. 73.08 from Rs. 114.75

Solution:

Method 1 (with conversion to Paise):

Rs. 73.08 = 7300 Paise + 08 Paise = 7308 Paise

Rs. 114.75 = 11400 Paise + 75 Paise = 11475 Paise

11475 Paise

– 7308 Paise
4167 Paise

Hence difference of Rs. 73.08 from Rs. 114.75 = 4167 Paise = Rs. 41.67

Method 2

(without conversion to Paise):

Rs. P

114. 75

– 73. 08
41. 67

(i) Rs. and Paise are arranged in columns with a decimal point in between.

(ii) The smaller amount is subordinated to the larger amount.

(iii) The subtraction is made as an ordinary subtraction.

(iv) 75 Paise – 08 Paise = 67 Paise

(v) Rs. 114 – Rs. 73 = Rs. 41

Hence difference of Rs. 114.75 – Rs. 73.08 = Rs. 41.67
