Here's an easy example:

8
-
6
=
2
 
                
-
            
=
    
 
   DarkKhaki Box   SpringGreen Box   Green Box   Peru Box   BurlyWood Box   Empty Box   Magenta Box   MediumSpringGreen Box  minus     DarkKhaki Box   SpringGreen Box   Green Box   Peru Box   BurlyWood Box   Empty Box  equals     Magenta Box   MediumSpringGreen Box

We start with eight boxes, take away six boxes, and now have two boxes. We take away six boxes from our eight boxes to get two boxes.


Here's another example:

In order to do basic subtraction, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! When you are finished with this lesson, you will know the following equations:

  6 - 6 =   0
  7 - 6 =   1
  8 - 6 =   2
  9 - 6 =   3
10 - 6 =   4
11 - 6 =   5
12 - 6 =   6
13 - 6 =   7
14 - 6 =   8
15 - 6 =   9
16 - 6 = 10
17 - 6 = 11
18 - 6 = 12


The following exercise will help you learn the above equations and what they mean. Please take your time: take whatever time you need to learn the material.
