Subtraction in base 8 2015-10-21
From Adi:
Hi! Can you help me with a nagging problem, I searched a lot over the web and couldn't find it. I saw this site I gave it a try and I found it to my liking.

I am confused how to subtract bases from other bases:
567 (in base 8)
- 456 (in base 8)
______________
?????????
How do you do this? I do know how to carry and subtract with different bases. Can you please help me?

Thanks,
Adi
