# How to subtract 2 numbers in R?

This recipe helps you subtract 2 numbers in R

0

## Recipe Objective

This recipe demonstrates how to carry out one of the basic arithmetic operation i.e. Subtraction. We will perform subtraction on two numbers and store them in the 'result' variable.

## Step 1: Creating two numeric variables

We assign numbers to two variables.

``` a <- 10 b <- 5 ```

## Step 2: Subtracting the two variables

We use the arithmetic operator " - " to carry out this task and finally store the result in a third variable.

``` result <- a - b # displaying the value stored in result result ```
``` 5
```

Alternatively, we can also subtract two numbers without assigning any variables to it. Just like a calculator. This is done simply by writing the operation below and pressing 'enter'

``` 10-5 ```
``` 5
```
