5 + 3 =8 and 5-3 = 2 The difference between the two numbers is 2.

24 and 21?

The difference between two negative numbers is negative if the second number ( the number you are subtracting from the first) is less in value than the first. For example (-3) - ( -2) = -3 + 2 = -1 (-3) - (-4) = -3 + 4 = + 1

It is always 1 or -1 as for example 3-2 = 1 or 2-3 = -1

The counting numbers are {1, 2, 3, ...}. The integers are the counting numbers, their opposites (-1, -2, ...) and zero. So they are {..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}.

the numbers 2 & 3

2 and 3 are the first two prime numbers. The difference between them is 1

Any prime numbers greater than 2 will be odd numbers. The difference between two odd numbers will be an even number. So, the difference between two prime (and odd) numbers could be 2, 4, or 6, of the numbers given. The difference could not be 3, 5, or 7.

3 & 5.

The difference can be rational or irrational.5 + sqrt(3) and 2 + sqrt(3) are both irrational numbers but their difference is[5 + sqrt(3)] - [2 + sqrt(3)] = 3, which is rational.

All prime numbers are odd numbers, except for the number 2. The difference between two odd numbers must be a multiple of 2. So, if the difference between two prime numbers is another prime number, that difference must be 2.Examples:{3, 5}{5, 7}{11, 13}{29, 31}

As the number 2 is the only even prime number then a difference of 1 occurs only between 2 and 3. All other prime numbers are odd and therefore the minimum difference between successive prime numbers is 2.

The difference between ANY two numbers that are different, is positive. For example, the difference between -5 and -3 is 2. You can move two whole numbers either up from -5, or down from -3, on the number line.
