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:

12 - 12 =   0
13 - 12 =   1
14 - 12 =   2
15 - 12 =   3
16 - 12 =   4
17 - 12 =   5
18 - 12 =   6
19 - 12 =   7
20 - 12 =   8
21 - 12 =   9
22 - 12 = 10
23 - 12 = 11
24 - 12 = 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.
