Subtraction of Two Numbers
When one quantity is taken away from another, the result is called subtraction or difference.
87 - 69 = 18
Subtraction of Three Numbers
Remember the steps for the subtraction:
Step I: Add the numbers having '-'(minus) sign and write the result with-sign.
Step II: Add the numbers having ?+? (plus) sign and write the result with + sign. This method is applied when addition and subtraction are given. Simultaneously.
Step III: Finally subtract the numbers.
Step I: \[[\,33\,]+[\,2\,]\]
Step II: is not applicable here.
NOTE: This method goes same for any subtraction. No matter, how many numbers are involved in the given subtraction problem. In another words this method is applied for the subtraction of 2 numbers; 3 numbers; 4 numbers; 5 numbers and so on.
Subtraction of Four Numbers
Let's understand it through an example:
We add 1st
Subtraction of Fine Numbers
To subtract the five numbers, the subtraction pattern remains same as discussed in the previous topic.
There were 56 student in a school for class test. How many students have passed the test if 32 students were not appeared for the test?
(a) 23 (b) 24
(c) 22 (d) 26
(e) None of these
& \,\,\,56 \\
& -32 \\
Therefore, option (b) is correct:
Subtraction of Figures
Numbers are: \[[\,2\,],\,\,[\,4\,],\,\,[\,6\,],\,\,[\,8\,]\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\]etc.
Figures are:  hours,  apples.
 minutes,  rupees etc.
Thus it is clear that when a number represents something particular then it becomes a figure. For subtracting figure, let?s see the example given below:
10 hours - 5 hours = 5 hours
 rupees ?  rupees =  rupees.
(a) 4 (b) 5
(c) 3 (d) 2
(e) None of these
Explanation: 6 ? 2 = 4. Therefore, option (a) is correct.
