In subtraction, the minuend minus the subtrahend equals the difference.
The result of two numbers being divided together is called the quotient.
The result is called the quotient.
When you subtract one number from another, the result is called the difference. What does your question mean? If by "when two whole numbers are subtracted" you mean that you subtract one whole number from the minuend, and then you subtract another whole number from the difference, then the answer you get is another difference. In effect, you have one minuend and two subtrahends.
The number is two
the " difference ".
The resulting number is their "sum".
22 and 12
They are 16 and 9
The numbers are 55.5 and 44.5
2 or -1
5 and 4
20 and 10.
They are: 36-1 = 35
If you are asking how many numbers difference is there between two numbers, then it will be positive. If you are referring to subtraction, if the number you are subtracting from is the larger number, it will be positive. If it is smaller it will be negative. 3 - 2 = 1 (3, the number being subtracted from, is larger, so the answer is positive) 2 - 3 = -1 (2, the number being subtracted from, is smaller, so the answer is negative)
When multiplying, the indices of the two numbers are added together whereas for division they are subtracted. In either case, the result needs to be adjusted so that the mantissa is in the range [1, 10).
It is the result of two numbers being multiplied by each other.
Minuend minus subtrahend equals difference
