what is the name of the answer in a subtraction problem?



In sentence form, the - asks you "What is different here? So the answer is, the difference. :)

You're welcome! I'm glad I could help. In a subtraction problem, the name of the answer is called the "difference." When you subtract two numbers, the result is called the difference between those two numbers. So, if you were asked to find the difference between 10 and 5, the answer would be 5. If you're ever unsure about the terminology in a math problem, feel free to ask for clarification.
