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

-1/6 since the number is smaller than what is being subtracted the answer will be negative to get it you simply subtract the smaller number from the bigger and add the negative sign

No, it isn't. The bigger the denominator (bottom number), the smaller the fraction ~x

Add enough zeros so the smaller number becomes bigger than the bigger one. It's difficult to divide 50 into 4, but it's easier to divide 50 into 4.00

Easy...... you take the bigger number (4)and subtract your smaller number (3)from it, leaving you with a ratio of 1.

1). Find the difference between them. Forget about plus and minus, just subtract the smaller one from the bigger one. 2). Write the difference, and give it the sign of whichever original number was bigger.

It means the answer will be negative. (Because you're taking away more than you're starting with.) Go ahead and subtract the smaller number from the bigger one, and then make the result negative.

You have two numbers. You want to know which one is bigger and which one is smaller. Start counting . . . one, two, three, four . . . etc. -- The one you get to first is the smaller one. -- The one you get to last is the bigger one.

No because I think if an apple is bigger than a smaller one the bigger one must have more seed then the smaller one.

-- divide the larger number by the smaller one-- subtract '1' from the answer-- multiply what's left by 100You now have the percentage increase from the smaller number to the larger one.
