The calculation of a subtraction or a difference is based on the dCode equation solver. This is only a particular form of equation involving the `-` subtraction operator (minus).

__Example:__ $ x-2=1 \iff x=3 $

Indicate the equation variable with a letter (often `x`, avoid `?`) and to indicate that it is this unknown which is sought, the solver will return the subtraction result either as an integer, fraction, or a floating point number (numeric form).

Indicate several lines of subtractions with the same variable(s) or eventually link them with the AND logical operator: `&&`.

__Example:__ `x - 1 = 0 && y + 1 = 0`

Equations involving addition, multiplication, division or others can be solved by the dCode equation solver.

The subtraction sign is read `minus` or `subtracted`.

__Example:__ `5-z` is read `5 minus z` or `z subtracts from 5`
