Find the Difference

At the Ones column, we cannot subtract 4 from 1, so we need to borrow from the Tens column

11 is greater than 4, so we can subtract and get 7 in the Ones column

9 is greater than 4, so we can subtract and get 5 in the Tens column

1 is greater than 0, so we can subtract and get 1 in the Hundreds column
