# Definition of Minus

There are two possible meanings of **minus**

- Subtract (take away): e.g. \(7\) minus \(4\) is \(3\) (written \(7 - 4 = 3\)).
- A negative number: e.g. "minus \(15\) degrees" means \(15\) degrees below zero. In other words, it's very cold, and time to wear lots of thick clothes.
