Same Change Subtraction Rule Method
This method is best used when dealing with
two-digit numbers.  

It is based on the recognition that a subtraction
problem is easier if the smaller number ends in
one or more zeros.  


Using this rule makes the problem more user
friendly by changing the second number in the
problem to a number with a zero in the ones
place. And change the first number by the same
amount.

Example: 225 - 58 may be changed into 227 - 60
