In this post we will try to understand subtraction of 2 from any given number. First we will try to understand the concept using number line after that we will solve some related questions to practice the technique.

All the concept and worksheet provided in this site is as per US and Canada Math Curriculum. Any student who want to develop their math skill can learn from this website without any extra cost.

**Number 2 Subtraction** **Explanation**

When we subtract any number by 2, we have to make two jumps to the left on the number line to get the required answer

For Example**12 – 2 = ?**

Here we have subtracted number 2 from number 12.

In order to get the answer we will make two jumps towards left on the number line

To understand the above solution, follow the below steps:

Step 1: Start from number 12 on the number line

Step 2: Make two jumps towards left

Step 3: Stop at number 10

**Hence 12 – 2 = 10 is the required answer**

This is how subtraction with number 2 works. Let us now understand some other examples for our conceptual understading.

**Example 02****5 – 2 = ?**

Do the following steps on the number line

Step 1: Start from number 5 on the number line

Step 2: Make two jumps towards left

Step 3: Stop at number 3

Hence, **5 – 2 = 3** is the required answer

**Example 03****9 – 2 = 7**

Do the following steps on the number line

Step 1: Start from number 9 on the number line

Step 2: Make two jumps towards left

Step 3: Stop at number 7

Hence, **9 – 2 = 7** is the required answer

This is how subtraction with number 2 works.

Below is the table of subtraction with number 2 from numbers 1 to 20

**Conclusion **:** On subtracting number with 2, we have to jump two times to the left on number line**
