Hi;

I read addition page in mif and found how to place zero in 'tens' means in 10 there is 1 ten and no one's

https://www.mathsisfun.com/place-value.html

What if we have 1 Ten, but no Ones? We show "no Ones" by putting a zero there:

Tens

Ones

1 0

ten balls

This is ok!! But when I read subtraction

The Solution: Make the "2" larger by "regrouping

http://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/subtraction-regrouping.html

The Solution: Make the "2" larger by "regrouping" (press arrow button):

In 32:

the "3" means 3 tens,

the "2" means 2 ones,

So we:

reduce the 3 by 1

increase the 2 by 10

And we get:

2 tens,

12 ones

Question is :In subtraction by regrouping how we make 12 ones and why in place value how we write 12 ones ?? 12 ones is not possible??
