2003): Sums to 18, Minuends
to 12, and Minuends
The sum of these two numbers should equal the minuend
This problem shows that the digit in the ones place value of the subtrahend (7) is larger than the corresponding digit (3) in the minuend
So, just as it does today, utilizing the current law basis as the minuend
in the computation of loss would prevent the taxpayer from having a second opportunity to receive the tax benefit of unclaimed allowable depreciation deductions in the form of a tax loss whether or not they provided tax benefits.
Numerical subtraction problem with the unknown in the minuend
In subtraction, doing the opposite step--for example, adding if you subtracted--only works for the minuend
, not the subtrahend.
in the tens and/or hundreds columns) of the minuend
, the student borrows all the way to the left.
Low-stress subtraction involves renaming the minuend
and writing it between the original minuend
and the subtrahend before subtracting individual digits (Hutchings 1975).
This process does not necessarily mean that they perform an algorithmic check, such as adding the difference to the subtrahend to be sure that the sum is the minuend
In this next vignette, Jackie, a third grader who had already had experiences with subtraction, used an abstraction of the meaning of the minuend
and subtrahend to create her own method of subtracting quantities.
The traditional algorithm for subtraction in the United States involves "borrowing," or regrouping, from the minuend
, the quantity from which the subtrahend is subtracted.
Addition/subtraction combinations (ASC): This measure assesses students' ability to correctly write the answers to addition and subtraction facts (sums or minuends
ranging from 0-18).
