### How do you check subtraction with addition?

I have a new way in checking answers in subtraction. If you have the answer, subtract the minuend to the difference then, if the answer is the subtrahend the answer is correct. Here is an example. E.g. 13738724-11234689=2504035 Check = 13738724(the minuend)-2504035(the answer)= 11234689 Another simple example. E.g. 67-23=44 Check= 67(minuend)-44(answer)=23(subtrahend) Thanks and God Bless You! NOTE: I do not know if anyone also knows this trick!

### How did the Greeks subtract using the ancient Greek numeral system?

The Greeks used a combination of addition and subtraction to perform subtraction in their numeral system. They would determine the difference between two numbers by adding the complement (the number that, when added, would equal the base of the numeral system) of the subtrahend (the number being subtracted) to the minuend (the number being subtracted from). This process involved breaking down the numbers into their place values and performing the necessary computations.
