int c = 50 - 5; // Sets 'c' to 45 int d = c - 5; // Sets 'd' to 40 int e = d - 60; // Sets 'e' to -20
int a = 5; // Sets 'a' to 5 int b = -a; // Sets 'b' to -5 int c = -(5 + 3); // Sets 'c' to -8
|Description||Subtracts one value from another and may also be used to negate a value. As a subtraction operator, the value of the second parameter is subtracted from the first. For example, 5 - 3 yields the number 2. As a negation operator, it is equivalent to multiplying a number by -1. For example, -5 is the same as 5 * -1.|
