• i feel so dumb sometimes i cant add and subtract in my head >.<
• It's okay, all you need is practice. Practice, pracTICE, PRACTICE
• It depends on how you like it to be. I like to go from right to left.
• What are minuend and subtrahend?
Subtrahend is the number take from the minuend.
So in "3 - 2 = 1", 3 is the minuend and 2 is the subtrahend.
• 10.1-3.93 is so easy but a little bit hard
• Note that 3.93 is only 0.07 less than 4. So we can subtract 4 from 10.1 to get 6.1 (or 6.10), then add back 0.07 to get a final answer of 6.17.

Have a blessed, wonderful day!

• I was taught to subtract from right to left, however he subtracts left to right..
