As many times as you want. If what you mean is, how many times can you subtract 2 from 46 before you hit zero (that is, "how many times does two go into 46") the answer is 23.

Just once. Because the number is now 30 and not 32. So, it is impossible to subtract from it again.

8 times. (2 * 8 = 16) If you subtract "2" 8 times this will leave you with 0.

a total of 25 times

The number is 2 because (6*2)-5 = 7

Just once - after that, you are no longer subtracting from 25.

12 times, this question is really saying what is 24 divided by 2, 12

2 divided by 12 equals 24 ....so you can take 2 out of 24, 12 times

Not necessarily.

An easy way to do this is to manipulate the original number and make sure to "undue" all the manipulations you did. For example: pick any number, add 3, subtract 2, subtract the number you started with, you have 1. Example explained: x + 3 - 2 - x = 1. More complex example: pick any number, multiply by 2, add 4, subtract 2, divide by 2, subtract 2, add 4, subtract the number you started with, you have 3. Explained: (((x * 2) + 4 - 2) / 2) - 2 + 4 - x = (2x + 2) / 2 + 2 = x + 3 - x = 3.

well you start with 101 and subtract 2 from it, you get 99, so you arn't subtracting from 101 anymore so its 1.

As a mathematical problem, 25, because 50/2 = 25. As a puzzle, the answer is 1, because after you have subtracted 2 once, the number you are subtracting from is no longer 50.

If you want to subtract a smaller number from a bigger number then just subtract. For example: 14 - 12 = 2 and etc. (more but it is going to be too long) 15 - 13 = 2 16 - 14 = 2

The smallest number that you can subtract from 85232 to make it a multiple of 9 is 2

You subtract the atomic number from the atomic weight. For example, if you have a helium atom and its atomic weight is 4 and you subtract its atomic number (2) the number of neutrons in the helium atom is 2.

The grouping of symbols and number of 4 times 6 subtract 2 plus 7 equals 23 would look like 4(6-2)+7=23. Remember the problem with the in parenthesis should be completed first.

Call the unknown number n. Then, from the problem statement, {4[(n + 7 - 2) - n]} - 2 = 18. This is always true because [(n + 7 - 2) - n] is simply 5.
