My name is Chris elementary question I am a elem. school admin. looking to help one of my teachers. When you have an addition problem you have two addends that equal a sum. Therefore . . . I know the answer to a subtraction problem is the difference - what is the name of the numbers that make up a subtraction problem? Thanks Chris |

Hi Chris, These are terms I didn't know but I searched and found
I found this at Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I then look for minuend and subtrahend in two dictionaries hoping to find synonyms but I found none. Harley Chris, I just received this from Diane, who is a math and science consultant for a school board here.
