Java Programming | Subtraction of numbers


This is a tutorial for subtraction of numbers in java. The program is given below that explain it in brief. The program is extendable. Go enjoy the program. Lets begin………

Program for subtraction of numbers in java

//import Scanner as we require it.
import java.util.Scanner;

// the name of our class its public
public class Subno {
//void main
public static void main (String[] args)
//declare int
int x,y,z;
//print message
System.out.println(“Enter Two numbers:”);
//Take input
Scanner input = new Scanner(;
x = input.nextInt();
y = input.nextInt();
z = x – y;
//print the sub
System.out.println(“Sub = “+z);


Enter Two numbers:
Sub = 3

How it works

  1. The program prints the message to enter numbers.
  2. The user enters numbers.
  3. Sub is calculated.
  4. The sub is printed.

Extending it

The program can be extended by adding more numbers and calculating their sub.


  1. Import the Scanner.
  2. Declare the class as public
  3. Add the void main function
  4. Add system.out.println() function with the message to enter numbers.
  5. Declare input as Scanner.
  6. Take the numbers and save it in variables.
  7. Calculate Sub and save it in other variable.
  8. Add system.out.println() function to print the sub.

At the end

You learnt creating the Java program for subtraction of two numbers. So now enjoy the program.
