If x and y are integars and x > y > 0, how many integars are there between, but not including x and y?

- x-y
- x+y
- X-y-1
- X+y-1
- X-y+1

If x and y are integars and x > y > 0, how many integars are there between, but not including x and y?

- x-y
- x+y
- X-y-1
- X+y-1
- X-y+1

Answer: x-y-1

When we subtract x-y it includes x thus we need to subtract 1 from the answer. It is similar to inclusive counting.

Additionally assuming values would also do:

Take an example: Say x=6 & y=3;

There are only 2 Integers between 6 & 3 i.e. 5,4.

Answer by formula

6-3-1 = 2
