Aspects

vs

Multiplication

Multiplication is the mathematical operation of scaling one number by another

Subtraction

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

Higher precedence rule

Example

"As a general rule addition subtraction and multiplication take roughly the same time on a large number of processors;you might imagine that multiplication is a lot slower but it turns out not to be"

from question

Which one is faster 5+5+5+5+5 or 5*5?

"This subtraction operator occurs within the second brackets and so has a higher precedence than the multiplication"

from question

Complex calculation in JavaScript

"Multiplication and division have higher precedence than addition and subtraction and all have left-to-right associativity"

from question

What is the exact reason why some of these work and other's don't?

"The output i am trying to get is when i input 1 + 1 i need to get the output of 2 and i want to implement the mdas rule which the multiplication and division has higher precedence over addition and subtraction"

from question

Java simple calculator using text

"For integers addition subtraction and logical operations like and or xor are never any slower than any other operation;for integers multiplication is harder than addition may be slower than addition etc but may still be very fast as long as there is sufficient cpu-power dedicated to it"

from question

Do different operators have different amounts of cpu usage?

"Since multiplication has a higher precedence than subtraction you should subtract 0 to your digit character before multiplying it"

from question

C pointer char array to char array

"Step 0 the input expression step 1 in terms of operator precedence increment decrement have a higher precedence than multiplication division and multiplication division have a higher precedence than addition subtraction so add some parentheses to clarify that step 2 the next thing to do is to replace the variables with values taking into account how the pre post-increment decrement operators work step 3 the only thing not related to operator precedence performing an operation on integer operands yields an integer result even if the result of the expression is assigned to a floating point type"

from question

How did it I get this answer?

"In t-sql unary minus is made to be the same priority as subtraction which is lower than multiplication"

from question

Why is SQL Server changing operation order and boxing the way it does?

Shift title example

Example

"Multiplication is slower than subtraction"

from question

How to negate a variable?

"As in title why is multiplication much faster than subtraction in this example"

from question

Tensorflow: why is multiplication 20x faster than subtraction in this case

"Possibly is slightly faster as shift subtraction might be faster than multiplication"

from question

Why 5 bit left shift in hashing function?

Multiplication simple unsigned

Example

"Addition subtraction for the rectangular bound calculation is cheaper than multiplication"

from question

Fast circle collision detection

"Thanks to twos complement signed and unsigned addition and subtraction are the same;multiplication is a little trickier multiplying two 32-bit digits can produce a 64-bit result"

from question

How are numbers greater than 2^32 handled by a 32 bit machine?

"For floating point operations addition and subtraction are harder than multiplication and division so they may be slower or not again it depends on how much transistor real estate there is dedicated to the fpu"

from question

Do different operators have different amounts of cpu usage?

"Addition and subtraction are simple;multiplication requires a bit more work as the naive algorithm requires nested loops"

from question

How to Code a Solution To Deal With Large Numbers?

"The numbers can t be equal to zero and the user must use numbers 1-4 to choose between addition subtraction multiplication and division"

from question

Variable is not updated after while loop is used Python

"For x86 64bit addition subtraction is done using add-with-carry and subtract-with-borrow instructions;64bit multiplication is much more complicated but also done using a combination of 32-bit multiplies and 32-bit add-with-carry instructions"

from question

Operations on 64 bits operands in 32 bit architectures?

"The addition and subtraction are much more than multiplication and division"

from question

Generate random pupil math problems

"Subtraction operations and usually significantly faster than multiplication and division"

from question

Why were bitwise operations slightly faster than addition/subtraction operations on older microprocessors?

"Addition and subtraction are then a very simple integer operation such as 0.72 + 1 becomes 72 + 100 becomes 172 becomes 1.72;multiplication is slightly more complex as it needs an integer multiply followed by a scale back such as 0.72 2 becomes 72 200 becomes 14400 becomes 144 scaleback becomes 1.44"

from question

What's the best way to do fixed-point math?

Others

Example

In general multiplication is more costlier than subtraction right

from question

Opencv Subtraction costlier than multiplication

When default exception handling is in effect a subtraction that produces a tiny in the subnormal interval 1 non-zero result conceptually causes an underflow exception but there is no observable effect because;a subtraction that produces a tiny result is necessarily exact due to characteristics of the floating-point format there are no significand bits lower than the bits in a subnormal value and subtraction unlike multiplication cannot mathematically have any lower bits than there are in the inputs

from question

Causing underflow in ieee-754 floating point format using subtraction

But if you had to choose between an actual fp multiple or fp add instruction normally subtraction has latency at least as good as multiplication

from question

Additive inverse of a number: subtraction from zero or multiplication by −1
