Let's say you want the difference of 12 and 6. 126 = 6 Not always 20 and 10? 2010 = 10 10=10, so not always 4 and 3? 43 = 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!
