This is the final of the 3-part series on adding and subtracting numbers in different bases. This lesson is about subtracting numbers with borrowing in other bases. Many good examples are shown with an abacus. This really helps students see clearly how this operation works.

What is this? I'm sorry, I can't learn like this. It would be nice if the video just got straight to the point rather than annoying me with this failed attempt at entertainment.

I love it! This video, and all videos by Perez, are awesome. As an adult learner, I really connected to his explanation and humor!
