Let's say you want the difference of 12 and 6. 12-6 = 6 Not always 20 and 10? 20-10 = 10 10=10, so not always 4 and 3? 4-3 = 1 In this case, sometimes it is true.

The chocoluver is right, but there's an even more dramatic example: 10 - (-20) = 30. In this example, the difference is actually *larger* than both numbers!
