DEFINITIONS.

The process of finding the difference between two numbers is called Subtraction.

The greater of the two numbers is called the Minuend.

The lesser of the two numbers is called the Subtrahend.

The result obtained by subtracting is called the Remainder or Difference.

The Sign of Subtraction is a short horizontal line : called minus.

1. From 768 subtract 425.

PROCESS.

EXPLANATION.-For convenience the less

number is written under the greater, units 768

under units, tens under tens, etc. 425

Beginning at the right hand, each figure 343

of the subtrahend is subtracted from the cor

responding figure of the minuend. 8 units minus 5 units equal 3 units, which are written under the units.

6 tens minus 2 tens equal 4 tens, which are written under the tens.

7 hundreds minus 4 hundreds equal 3 hundreds, which are written under the hundreds. Hence the remainder is 343.

LESSON LXXI.

PROCESS.

[ocr errors]

1. From 7425 subtract 2536?

EXPLANATION. For convenience the

less number is written under the greater, Minuend 7 + 25

units under units, tens under tens, hundreds Subtrahend 25 36

under hundreds, etc. Remainder 4889 Beginning at the right hand, each fig

ure of the subtrahend is subtracted from the corresponding figure of the minuend.

Since 6 units can not be subtracted from 5 units, 1 ten is united with the 5 units. 1 ten is equal to 10 units. 10 units and 5 units are 15 units. 6 units from 15 units leave 9 units. The 9 is written in units' place.

Since 1 of the tens was united with the units, there is but 1 ten left. Because 3 tens can not be subtracted from 1 ten, 1 hundred is united with the 1 ten. 1 hundred is equal to 10 tens. 10 tens and 1 ten are 11 tens. 3 tens from 11 tens leave 8 tens. The 8 is written in tens' place.

Because 5 hundreds can not be subtracted from 3 hundreds, 1 thousand is united with the 3 hundreds. 1 thousand equals 10 hundreds. 10 hundreds and 3 hundreds equal 13 hundreds. 5 hundreds from 13 hundreds leave 8 hundreds. The 8 is expressed in hundreds' place.

Since 1 thousand was added with the hundreds, there are but 6 thousands left. 2 thousands from 6 thousands leave 4 thousands. The 4 is written in thousand's place in the remainder.

Hence the remainder is 4889.
