Austrian Subtraction

Clancy at Culture Cat writes about Austrian versus American subtraction. And she's right. The Austrian method is, at least to me, much more natural.

In fact, despite the fact that I was never taught it, I use a form of it when doing hand calculations. Besides being quicker, you get an estimate of the result immediately, which is often quite useful.
