Best answer
Difference means to subtract the two numbers:

     5 437 -2 798

= 5 000 - 2 000  , 400 - 700, 30 - 90 , 7 - 8

so we need to borrow to balance the order,

= 4 000 - 2 000  , 1 400 - 700, 30 - 90 , 7 - 8

= 4 000 - 2 000  , 1 300 - 700, 130 - 90 , 7 - 8

= 4 000 - 2 000  , 1 300 - 700, 120 - 90 , 17 - 8

then finally = 2 000 + 600 + 30 + 9

                  = 2 639
