# How to Subtract Multiple Cells in Excel

Assuming you have a basic understanding of how to subtract two cells in Excel, subtracting multiple cells is essentially the same process, except that you’ll be selecting more than two cells. The process is still relatively simple and only requires a few steps.

1. Select the cells you want to subtract. You can do this by clicking and dragging your mouse over the cells, or by holding down the “Shift” key and clicking on each cell individually.

2. Once the cells are selected, click on the “-” sign at the top of the screen. This will open up the “Subtract” dialogue box.

3. In the “Subtract” dialogue box, select the cell you want to subtract from the other cells. In most cases, this will be the cell that contains the number you want to subtract from the others.

4. Click “OK” and the numbers in the selected cells will be subtracted from the number in the chosen cell.

## -Select the cells you want to subtract

If you want to subtract multiple cells in Excel, you can do so by selecting the cells you want to subtract and then using the subtraction operator (-). For example, if you want to subtract the values in cells A1 and A2, you would select those cells and then type =A1-A2 into the cell where you want the result to appear.

You can also subtract cells by using a formula. For example, if you want to subtract the value in cell A1 from the value in cell A2, you would type =A2-A1 into the cell where you want the result to appear.

If you want to subtract multiple cells, you can use the SUM function. For example, if you want to subtract the values in cells A1:A5, you would type =SUM(A1:A5)-A1 into the cell where you want the result to appear.

You can also use the SUBTRACT function. For example, if you want to subtract the value in cell A1 from the value in cell A2, you would type =SUBTRACT(A2,A1) into the cell where you want the result to appear.

You can also use the MINUS function. For example, if you want to subtract the value in cell A1 from the value in cell A2, you would type =MINUS(A2,A1) into the cell where you want the result to appear.
