1.awarded

If you check the Yahoo! Dictionary, you will find that the meaning of awarded is 授予,給予[O1]

So, it can mean plus or addition in Mathematics

2.backward

In Mathematics, backward is usually used in graph or number line.

Such as, the Triangle ABC is moved backward for 3 units, that means the coordinates of A,B,C will be moved to the negative area for 3 more units.

Such as, the number on the number line will be moved 1unit backward, that means the sign of the number on the number line will be moved to negative side for 1 unit.

3.withdrawal

In Mathematics, this word can be explained as we delete the data or the value.

Sometimes, the question may ask what is the value change or some answer calculated change when some data or value is withdrawal.
