The result is called the quotient Don't thank me thank my math teacher;)

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.

Yes, you can, but it starts getting complicated. You can, for example have a number raised to an exponent that is itself a number raised to an exponent, or you can have a number raised to an exponent and the result raised to another exponent.

You do the following: 1) Divide the second number by the first. This will give you a factor, for example 1.20. 2) Subtract 1 from the result. This gives you the increase as a factor, for example, 0.20. 3) Multiply the result by 100, to convert to a percentage. In this example, 20%.
