In the previous article, we have discussed about Java Program on Addition Operator

In this article we will see the use of Subtraction operator in Java.

## Java Program on Subtraction Operator

Addition operator is a binary operator and it is used to subtract two numbers. Subtraction operator is represented by the `-`

symbol.

Syntax: operand - operand

**Example:**

Let’s understand it more clearly.

Suppose we have 2 variables a and b.

a=22

b=13

Then we can use subtraction operator like this.

result=a-b; // here 2 variable operand subtracted

(or)

result = 15 – b; // here one constant operand i.e. 15 and variable operand i.e. ‘`b`

‘ subtracted

**Program:**

import java.io.*; class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { //Declaring variables int number1 = 100; int number2 = 20; //subtracting two numbers by using subtraction operator int result = number1-number2; //print results System.out.println("By performing subtraction operation: " + result); } }

Output: By performing subtraction operation: 80
