#### Answer

$462-397=65$

#### Work Step by Step

Working left to right, subtract the corresponding digits in each place value. If necessary borrow 10 from the next higher place value position to avoid a negative result.
$\ \ \ 462$
$\underline{-397}$
Borrow from the tens postion and subtract $12-7=5$
The subtrahend in the tens position is now 5. Borrow from the hundreds postion and subtract $15-9=6$
The subtrahend in the hundreds position is now 3. Subtract $3-3=0$
Write the result of each subtraction in its proper position for its place value. The leading zero in the hundreds position can be dropped.
