"When some things are taken away, they are being subtracted".
 The ''sign shows subtraction.
 Use the sign '' instead of 'take away'.
 Subtraction is written using the minus sign "−" between the terms.
 The result is expressed with an equals sign.
 21=1 "two minus one equals one"
 42=2 "four minus two equals two"
 63=3 "six minus three equals three"
 46=2 "four minus six equals negative two"
For example:
Subtraction on numbers
Cross Out, Say, And Write
 From 6, take away 4.
 Say 6 minus 4 equals 2
 Write 6  4 = 2
 From 9, take away 5.
 Say 9 minus 5 equal 4.
 Write 9  5 = 4
 From 5, take away 2.
 Say 5 minus 2 equal 3 or write 5  2 = 3

How to subtract two digit numbers
For example :
67  45
 Place one number above the other so the tens' place digits and ones' place digits are lined up. Draw a line under the bottom number.
 Subtract the two digits in the ones' place column. (7  5 = 2).
 Subtract the digits in the tens' place column (6  4 = 2) and place the answer below the line in the tens' place column.
 If the ones' place digit that is being subtracted is larger than the top ones' place digit, decrease the top tens' place digit by one and increase the top ones' place value by ten before subtracting.
