# Subtract the following:A) 18 rupees 9 paise from 75 rupees 80 paise.B) 49 rupees 79 paise from 123 rupees 68 paise.  Answer Verified
Hint: Use decimal concept.

We know that, 1 rupee = 100 paise. We can reframe these questions as follows:

18 rupees 9 paise from 75 rupees 80 paise
18 rupees 9 paise can be represented as 18.09 rupees and 75 rupees 80 paise can be represented as 75.80 rupees. Now, on subtracting we’ll get,
${\text{ }}75.80 \\ \underline { - 18.09} \\ {\text{ }}57.71 \\$
Which means 57 rupees 71 paise
49 rupees 79 paise from 123 rupees 68 paise
49 rupees 79 paise can be represented as 49.79 rupees and 123 rupees 68 paise can be represented as 123.68 rupees. Now, on subtracting we’ll get,
${\text{ 123}}.68 \\ {\text{ }}\underline { - 49.79} \\ {\text{ 73}}.89 \\$
Which means 73 rupees 89 paise.

Note: We can also perform the subtraction by making all units the same that are paise and then subtract.
