Java Math subtractExact(long x, long y) method

The java.lang.Math.subtractExact() is a built-in math function in java which returns the difference of the
arguments.It throws an exception if the result overflows a long.As subtractExact(long x, long y) is static,
so object creation is not required.

Syntax :

public static long subtractExact(long x, long y)
Parameter :
 x : the first value
 y : the second value to be subtracted from the first
Return :
This method returns the difference of the arguments.
Exception :
It throws ArithmeticException - if the result overflows a long.
