Addition

Addition is a mathematical operation that represents combining collections of objects together into a larger collection

Subtraction

Subtraction is a mathematical operation that represents the removal of an object from a collection.

Slower |
"It s possible though that software could mess things up by making subtraction slower than addition - but that s unlikely" from question "Does Adding A Value Differ In Computational Requirement From Subtracting A Value?" "This is a hold over from older compilers and interpreters on old chip architecture that would do addition slightly slower than subtraction" from question "How can I enhance this for loop" |

Slower bignum |
"But i d think bignum subtraction is a little slower than bignum addition" from question "Fermat vs Mersenne as modulus" |

Others

Quality | Example |

Slower |
"Here it is conceivable that subtraction is slower than addition" from question "Does Adding A Value Differ In Computational Requirement From Subtracting A Value?" |

Bigger |
"I was thinking that there could be an issue if the result from the addition is bigger than what 15 bits can represent 32767 or if i get a negative number in the subtraction" from question "VHDL: issues with adding and subtracting" |

Better |
"A111 addition is equal or better than subtraction" from question "Minimum number of steps to reduce number to 1" |

Higher precedence |
"The only way it would be broken up differently would be if addition had a higher precedence than subtraction like multiplication does" from question "How does Javascript handle BODMAS?" |

More work |
"The subtraction case is going to require a little more work than addition in this code" from question "Blue Pelican Add 'Em Up Project" |
