## Instructions or things to keep in mind as you use the subtraction calculator

- Just enter your first number in the first box on top. This number is the
**minuend** in a subtraction problem. This is also the **upper number** if you are doing vertical subtraction or the **number on the left** if you are doing horizontal subtraction.

- Just enter your second number in the second box in the middle. This number is the
**subtrahend** in a subtraction problem. This is also the **lower number** if you are doing vertical subtraction or the **number on the right** if you are doing horizontal subtraction.

- Then click on the button that says
**calculate**.

**Example:**

Suppose you want to subtract 45826 from 57472.

Then, the subtraction problem is 57472 - 45826.

57472 is the minuend, so enter this number in the box on top.

45826 is the subtrahend, so enter this number in the box in the middle.

After you hit the "Calculate" button, the calculator will display 11646

Notice that If you enter a number less than 0, the calculator will prompt you to enter a valid number. It is because the calculator was made for subtraction of whole numbers.

Therefore, do not enter negative numbers or number less than 0!

- If the calculator says to enter a valid number, it will clear the box that contains a value less than 0.

- "Enter a valid number" may also mean that you have entered only 1 number.

- If the top number is less than the bottom number, the calculator will prompt you as well.
