## Summary

PROPERTIES OF SUBTRACTION

PROPERTY 1: ZERO PROPERTY

0 is always taken as the subtrahend.
When we subtract 0 from 5, we get the difference 5.
Thus, when we subtract 0 from a number, the difference will be the number itself.

PROPERTY 2: SUBTRACTION OF A NUMBER FROM ITSELF

If we subtract a number from itself, the difference is always 0.
If we subtract 3 from 3  the difference is 0.

PROPERTY 3: ORDER PROPERTY

In subtraction, the order in which the numbers are subtracted are important
If the subtrahend is greater than the minuend, the answer is less than 0.
Therefore, you can’t change the order of the numbers. The bigger number should always be written first.

PROPERTY 4: SUBTRACTION OF 1

When we subtract 1 from any number, we get the predecessor of the number.
Remember: When we say predecessor in Mathematics, it is the number before the particular given number.
