Difference in math means subtraction. To express the difference between 6 and 2 you would use the equation 6 - 2 = 4.

by doing one operation ( +,-,x,/) you will get the answer to the problem. You have to pick the correct operation.

linear system is like a chemistry equation or math equation where on both sides it must balance. Nonlinear is a math equation or physics that does not appear to have a direct answer just like chaos theory. lulu254ever

Both words are used in similar ways, but strictly speaking, a formula is an expression, and an equation is a statement that two expressions are equal. An equation has an equals sign in it.

A math sentence is converting an equation to math words. A Statement, also known as a proposition, is an assertion that is true or false but both.
