Consider we have two expressions A, and B.
If we have C = A + B, we can say (I have seen this multiple times in academic papers):
C can be written as a sum of two expressions.
Now the question is, what can we say if we have:
C = A - B
Please, note that I am looking for a very technical word. for example, we cannot use the words "addition" , "plus" in the first sentence. I have never seen such sentences with these synonyms. Thanks
