In this post we will try to learn subtraction of two digit numbers. Before going through this chapter, make sure you have clear understanding of of basic subtraction which we have discussed in our previous post.

**Subtraction of Two Digits**

In order to subtract the two digit number, first we have to vertically align the number such that the digit in “ones and tens place” of both the number are aligned in the same line.

After aligning all the digits in proper order we have to subtract the individual digits to get the right answer.

The Large number from which small number is subtracted is called **Minuend**

The smaller number which is subtracted is called **Subtrahend**

The number we get after subtraction is called **Difference**

Let us understand the concept with the help of example.

**Example 01****Subtract 36 – 14 = ?**

Solution

Here 36 is Minuend

14 is Subtrahend

Do the following steps to calculate difference

Step 1: Align both the numbers vertically such that digit in ones and tens place are in the same line

Step 2: Now we have to start subtraction from right corner

First subtract the digit in ones place **(6 – 4 = 2 )**

Step 3: Now subtract the digit present in Tens place **(3 – 1 = 2 )**

Hence the value of subtraction **36 – 14 = 22**

**Example 02****Subtract 75 – 31 = ?**

Solution

Here 75 is Minuend

31 is Subtrahend

Step 1: Align both the numbers vertically such that digit in ones and tens place are vertically in the same line

Step 2: Now we have to start subtraction from right corner

First subtract the digit in ones place **(5 – 1 = 4 )**

Step 3: Now subtract the digit present in Tens place **(7 – 3 = 4 )**

Hence the value of subtraction **75 – 31 = 22**

**Example 03****Subtract 25 – 13 = ?**

Solution

Here 25 is Minuend

13 is Subtrahend

Step 1: First align the numbers vertically such that digits in tens and ones place are in line

Step 2: First subtract digits present in Ones Place **( 5 – 3 = 2)**

Step 3 : Now subtract digits in Tens Place ( 2 – 1 = 1 )

Hence the value of subtraction is:

⟹ **25 – 13 =** **12**

**Example 4****Subtract 98 – 97 = ?**

Solution

Here 98 is Minuend

97 is Subtrahend

Step 1: First align digits in tens and one place in vertical manner

Step 2: Now start subtraction from the right end (digits in Ones place)

Step 3: Now subtract digits in Tens Place **( 9 – 9 = 0 )**

Hence the value of subtraction is:

⟹ **98 – 97 =** **01**

**Example 5Subtract 60 – 60 = ?**

Solution

Here 60 is Minuend

60 is Subtrahend

Step 1: First align numbers vertically such that digits in Tens and Ones place are in the same line

Step 2: First subtract digits in ones place ( 0 – 0 = 0)

Step 3: Now subtract digits in Tens place ( 6 – 6 = 0)

Hence the value of subtraction is:

⟹ **60 – 60 =** **00**
