### What is Meant by the Subtraction?

In mathematics, subtraction is one of the four basic arithmetic operations. The subtraction process gives the difference between the two numbers. It is the inverse of the addition operation. The notation used to describe the subtraction is “minus (-)”. The subtraction process starts from the unit digit, then ten’s digits, the hundreds digit, and it continues the process towards the highest digit places. If the minuend is greater than the subtrahend, the subtraction process is easy, and we can subtract directly. If the minuend is lesser than the subtrahend, then borrow the number from the next highest digit of the minuend to continue the subtraction process.

For example,

15 – 5 = 10

Here,

15 is minuend

5 is subtrahend

10 is difference
