  Subtraction - Enchanted Learning
Subtraction is considered to be a binary operation because it is performed on two numbers.
In subtraction, you start on the right (the ones column), and subtract each column in turn until you are done (subtracting the tens column, then the hundreds column, etc.).
In a column, if the digit you are subtracting (in the subtrahend) is bigger than the digit you are subtracting from (in the minuend), you have to borrow a one from the next column to the left (the borrowed digit is a ten in the column to the right).

  PlanetMath: subtraction   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Subtraction is a mathematical operation in which the value of a number is decreased by the values of one or more other numbers.
Subtraction can be seen as a kind of addition with negative numbers.
Besides the possibility of overflow or underflow, subtraction presents no problems for fixed point arithmetic provided the operands are representable in fixed point to begin with.

 Subtraction | World of Mathematics
By treating subtraction of one number from another (a - b) as simply the addition of the number "a" with the additive inverse of "b" (that is, a + (-b)), the additive laws of arithmetic may be applied.
Subtraction on vectors is performed by defining the negative of a vector as being equal to a vector of equal magnitude but opposite direction.
Subtraction on matrices is valid only if each of the matrices to be subtracted is of the same order (contain the same number of rows and columns).

 Checking Subtraction (I)
In figure 1, the original subtraction is carried out by using the "Borrow Method." The same subtraction is then performed by using the "Carry Method." Since the answers obtained by both these methods match, the subtraction is correct.
Another way of checking subtraction is adding the remainder to the subtrahend and confirming whether this sum is equal to the minuend.
Calculate the remainder of nine for the remainder of the subtraction.

 Subtraction Summary
Subtraction is one of the four basic arithmetic operations; it is essentially the opposite of addition.
In mathematics, it is often useful to view or even define subtraction as a kind of addition, the addition of the opposite.
Subtraction is not associative or commutative— in fact, it is anticommutative— but addition of signed numbers is both.

When you are subtracting 1, 2, 3, or 4 from a number, begin with the top number and count down the bottom number of times.
When you are subtracting five from a two-digit basic fact, you just add the numerals in the one's place...(ex.

 The Abacus: Subtraction
Subtraction is performed by first registering the minuend and then subtracting, starting from the left, by removing beads from either or both the lower or upper decks.
When the number of beads in the lower deck is less than the subtracter (the number being subtracted), one or more beads are added in the lower deck and 1 bead is removed from the upper-deck.
Example: When subtracting 4 (+1-5 = -4) from 7 (represented by 1 bead in the upper-deck and 2 beads in the lower deck (less than 4, the subtracter), one bead is added to the lower deck (+1) and 1 bead is removed from the upper-deck (-5) leaving 3 beads, representing the result.

 Modeling Subtraction: Overview
Children were introduced to subtraction in Kindergarten and have experience with separating and comparing groups.
Subtraction is the inverse of addition, and although it is a different concept, it may be taught by using similar materials, models, and methods.
As for modeling addition, have children use manipulatives, such as counters, connecting cubes, and beans, to model subtraction, as well as pictures to depict subtraction facts and to illustrate subtraction problems.

Be sure to begin by determining the primary color(s) of light which are incident upon the object and then subtracting the absorbed color from the incident color(s).
If a filter is capable of absorbing a color of light which is not present in the mixture of incident light, then merely disregard that color; since that color of light is not present, it cannot contribute to the color appearance of the object.
The process of color subtraction is a useful means of predicted the ultimate color of an object if the color of the incident light and the pigments are known.

 Subtraction
Subtracting one number from another number is to find the difference between them.
As 7 cannot be subtracted from 3, add 10 units to 3 in the top number to form 13 and add 10 units to 90 in the bottom number which adds up to 100 as shown above.
As 7 cannot be subtracted from 3, borrow ten from the tens column and add it to 3 and at the same time, reduce the number of tens from 5 to 4 as shown above.

 #8: K-12 Education Subtraction and Credit
The amount of your subtraction or credit is based on the actual qualifying expenses you paid during the year for your child’s K–12 education—for which you have documentation—up to the maximums allowed by law.

 NICMOS Data Handbook Chapter 5.5: PSF Subtraction   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Accurate PSF subtraction is a prime concern for an observer wishing to study faint features around bright objects.
One way to get a high quality PSF for subtraction is to measure an isolated bright unsaturated star in the same image or to construct a composite PSF using good stars in the image.
PSF subtraction with NICMOS Camera 3 is extremely difficult due to the large pixel scale which severely undersamples the point spread function, and because of the strong intrapixel sensitivity variations (see section 5.3.3) which affect the structure of point source images.
