## Subtraction Sentence Examples

- Addition is the process of expressing (in numeration or notation) a whole, the parts of which have already been expressed; while, if a whole has been expressed and also a part or parts,

**subtraction**of one electric fluid from matter, so that positive electrification was to be looked upon as the result of increase or addition of something to ordinary matter and negative as a**subtraction**. - Or we might say that, since multiplication is a form of addition, and division a form of
**subtraction**, there are really only two fundamental processes, viz. - The change of the intrinsic energy in passing from one state to another, as from B to C is represented by the addition of the heat-area H= Bczz', and the

**subtractiontable**(concrete or ideal); but this table merely gives the generalized results of a number of operations of addition or**subtraction**performed with concrete units. - This is due to the fact that there are really two kinds of
**subtraction**, respectively involving counting forwards (complementary addition) and counting backwards (ordinary**subtraction**); and it suggests that it may be wise not to use the one symbol - to represent the result of both operations until the commutative law for addition has been fully grasped. - Girard is inconsistent in his notation, sometimes following Vieta, sometimes Stevin; he introduced the new symbols ff for greater than and ï¿½ for less than; he follows Vieta in using the plus (+) for addition, he denotes

**subtraction**of the angle of sight. - But, in attempting the inverse processes of
**subtraction**, division, and either evolution or determination of index, the data may be such that a process cannot be performed. - - In order to deal, by way of comparison or addition or
**subtraction**, with fractions which have different denominators, it is necessary to reduce them to a common denominator. - There is no difference in principle between addition (or
**subtraction**) of numbers and addition (or**subtraction**) of numerical quantities. - The five processes of deduction then reduce to four, which may be described as (i.)
**subtraction**, (ii.) division, (iii.) (a) taking a root, (iii.) (b) taking logarithms. It will be found that these (and particularly the first three) cover practically all the processes legitimately adopted in the elementary theory of the solution of equations; other processes being sometimes liable to introduce roots which do not satisfy the original equation. - Logistic or Proportional Logarithms. - The old name for what are now called ratios or fractions are logistic numbers, so that a table of log (a/x) where x is the argument and a a constant is called a table of logistic or proportional logarithms; and since log (a/x) =log a-log x it is clear that the tabular results differ from those given in an ordinary table of logarithms only by the
**subtraction**of a constant and a change of sign. - If We Count Forwards, Working From The Left, Or Backwards, Working From The Right; While, If We Count Backwards, Working From The Left, Or Forwards, Working From The Right, The

**subtraction**, multiplication and division of compound quantities. - Gaussian logarithms are intended to facilitate the finding of the logarithms of the sum and difference of two numbers whose logarithms are known, the numbers themselves being unknown; and on this account they are frequently called addition and
**subtraction**logarithms. The object of the table is in fact to give log (a =b) by only one entry when log a and log b are given. - The size of the boiler may be increased or diminished by the addition or
