The task is to Add two number using ‘-‘ operator.

Examples: 

Input : 2 3

The idea is simple, we subtract -b from a.

    cout << add(a, b) << endl;
    return 0;
}

    return a - (-b);
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main (String[] args)
{
    int a = 2, b = 3;
    System.out.print(add(a, b));
