# Spanish Easy Review Quiz - Math - Subtraction in Spanish (Questions)

This is a continuation quiz in our Spanish Easy Review math series and looks at subtraction. In this quiz, rather than use numerical numbers to do math we will be using the written word for the number. Naturally those words will be in Spanish. If you have not already done so, you might want to take a look at the Spanish Easy Review math quiz titled Addition in Spanish as that will give you a good understanding of what you will be doing here. This quiz will only deal with subtracting numbers to see if you can find the correctly spelled out answer in Spanish. Let’s do two examples.

treinta y cinco - quince = veinte (35 - 15 = 20)

setenta y tres - treinta y uno = cuarenta y dos (73 - 31 = 42)

These math problems are not hard but they will make you have to think about the answers in Spanish. You may have already heard and read that part of learning another language is to learn to think in that language. Doing math is a great way to help accomplish that goal! So, if you are ready, then move on to the following ten Spanish math problems and see if you can quickly find the correct answer.
