Teachers!

A subtraction table can be a useful tool to have on display somewhere in your classroom.

Some guidelines to follow when using the subtraction table

When using the table, you need to look first for a number in the leftmost column.

Then, subtract from that number by selecting a number in the top horizontal row.

The answer can be found where the column and row meet.

For instance, 8 (in the vertical column) minus 9 (in the horizontal row) = -1

Some other differences from the subtraction table

1 - 10 = -9          1 - 2 = -1           1 - 5 = -4

2 - 2 = 0             2 - 1 = 1            2 - 4 = -2

2 - 9 = -7           4 - 1 = 3             4 - 3 = 1

4 - 7 = -3           4 - 12 = -8         6 - 4 = 2

6 - 6 = 0            8 - 9 = -1           8 - 10 = -2

9 - 1 = 8            9 - 4 = 5            9 - 9 = 0

Notice that for each of the subtraction in the subtraction charts below, the number on the left is the minuend and the number on the right is the subtrahend.

For example, in the subtraction table of 1, 3 is the minuend and 1 is the subtrahend in 3 - 1 = 2.
