## What is Subtraction

Subtraction is one of the basic operations that is used to find the **difference between two numbers**. It is denoted with a symbol (-). It is a process of finding the number that is left after calculating the difference between two numbers.

The number (that is written at the top) from which the other number is subtracted is called minuend. The number from which minuend is subtracted is called subtrahend. It is the most common method used in daily life for buying or selling something to check what is the remaining value.

## How to Calculate Subtraction

For the calculation of Subtraction problems, Subtraction calculator follow basic rules of subtraction that will help you to **easily calculate the difference** problems without any trouble.

Let's explore important steps for subtraction with the help of an example. The calculator for subtraction also solves the problem in the following steps. For example, subtract 356 from 789.

**Step 1:**

Write down the numbers vertically, as per their place value, and start aligning them on the right side:

\begin{matrix} 7 & 8 & 9 \\ -3 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline \end{matrix}

**Step 2**:

First start from the rightmost digit (the one's place) from the top and bottom number and subtract it.

Subtract **6 from 9** as 9−6=3

\begin{matrix} 7 & 8 & 9 \\ -3 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline &&3 \\ \end{matrix}

**Step 3:**

Then go to the next place value (tens place) and subtract it.

Subtract **5 from 8** as 8−5=3

\begin{matrix} 7 & 8 & 9 \\ -3 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline & 3 & 3 \\ \end{matrix}

**Step 4**:

The next place value (hundreds place) and subtract it.

Subtract **3 from 7** as 7−3=4

\begin{matrix} 7 & 8 & 9 \\ -3 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline 4 & 3 & 3 \\ \end{matrix}

**Step 5**:

If there are no more digits left at the top and button so it is the solution of given problem

\begin{matrix} 7 & 8 & 9 \\ -3 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline 4 & 3 & 3 \\ \end{matrix}

**Step 6**:

If a number at the top is smaller than the number at bottom so take one number carry from next place value to malke them large number from the number written at bottom.

Therefore the solution of subtraction problem is

$$ 789−356 \;=\; 433 $$

## Example of Subtraction

Let's see an **example of the subtraction** problem with a complete solution to understand the how the subtraction calculator gives step by step solution.

### Example.

Find the subtraction of 6790 from 277 numbers.

**Solution**:

\begin{matrix} &&8 & 10 \\ 6 & 7 & \enclose{horizontalstrike}{9} & \enclose{horizontalstrike}0 \\ -0 & 2 & 7 & 7 \\ \hline 6 & 5 & 1 & 3 \\ \end{matrix}

### Example.

Find the subtraction of a given decimal number.

**Solution**:

\begin{matrix} &&2 & 14&&& \\ 8 & 9 & 4. & \enclose{horizontalstrike}{3} & \enclose{horizontalstrike}4 & 8 & 7 \\ -0 & 1 & 3. & 0 & 8 & 4 & 0 \\ \hline 8 & 8 & 1. & 2 & 6 & 4 & 7 \\ \end{matrix}
