In this program, we will see how to subtract two 8-bit numbers using 8085 microprocessor.

Write 8085 Assembly language program to subtract two 8-bit numbers and store the result at locations 8050H and 8051H.

In 8085, the SUB instruction is used 2’s complemented method for subtraction. When the first operand is larger, the result will be positive. It will not enable the carry flag after completing the subtraction. When the result is negative, then the result will be in 2’s complemented form and carry flag will be enabled.

We are using two numbers at location 8000H and 8001H. When the numbers are 78H and 5DH, then the result will be (78 – 5D = 1B) and when the numbers are 23H and CFH, then the result will be (23 – CF = 154) Here 1 indicates the number is negative. The actual result is 54H. It is in 2’s complemented form.
