a. The number "from which" another number is taken away is the "minuend."

The number that is taken away is the "subtrahend." The answer is the "difference."

17 (minuend)

-4 (subtrahend)

13 (difference)

b. When you are doing a problem in subtraction, always remember to keep the

columns of numbers in straight lines.

c. If the minuend in any column is smaller than the subtrahend, you can

"borrow" from the next column to the left. This gives you ten more to work with in the

right hand column but one less in the left hand column from which you have borrowed.

To do the problem above, you have to change the 5 in the minuend to 15, and

subtract 1 from 3 in the minuend.
