Convert to the same units, then the subtraction can be done.

Converting to cm:

1 m = 100 cm

→ 5 m - 300 cm = 5 × 100 cm - 300 cm = 500 cm - 300 cm = 200 cm

Converting to m:

100 cm = 1 m

→ 5 m - 300 cm = 5 m - (300 ÷ 100) m = 5 m - 3 m = 2 m

In this type of problems, you need to convert everything to the same units. In this case, I suggest you convert the centimeters to meters - however, you can just as well convert the meters to centimeters. Then you can subtract.
