Subtraction

 

Taking away one or more numbers from another number is called subtraction.  The term for subtraction is minus, and the symbol for minus is −.  The number being subtracted is called a subtrahend.  The number being subtracted from is called a minuend. The new number left after subtracting is called a remainder or difference.

 

Now look at these take-aways, or subtractions.
