What are the rules of subtracting polynomials?

You subtract a polynomial by adding its additive inverse. For example, subtracting (x - y) is the same as adding (-x + y). Alternately, you can simply subtract similar terms - that is, subtract the coefficients (the numbers) for terms that have the same combination of variables.
