How to use "Subtraction" in context?
Subtraction is a math operation that subtracts two numbers. It is one of the simplest operations in math, and it can be used to solve problems.
To subtract two numbers, you take the difference between the two numbers and use it to solve math problems. When subtracting two negative numbers, the subtracting operands are turned into positives by reversing the sign.
For subtraction to work, the two numbers must have the same units. For example, you can't subtract kilometers from meters. When two numbers have different units, you need to convert them to the same units before you can subtract them.
