{{ printedBook.courseTrack.name }} {{ printedBook.name }} **Subtraction** is one of the four basic Arithmetic Operations. It is the opposite of addition. Subtraction represents the operation of removing a quantity called the **subtrahend**, from another one called the **minuend**. The result is called the **difference**. This operation is represented using the *minus* sign $−$

.

Subtraction is not commutative, this means that the order in which subtraction is performed matters, as this leads to a different result. $5−33−5 =2=-2 $
