The gmp_sub() is an in-built function in PHP which returns the subtraction of the two GMP numbers.(GNU Multiple Precision: For large numbers)

Syntax:

gmp_sub($num1, $num2)

Parameters: This function accepts two GMP numbers $num1 and $num2 as mandatory parameters shown in the above syntax. These parameters can be a GMP object in PHP version 5.6 and later, or we are also allowed to pass a numeric string provided that it is possible to convert that string to a number.

Return Value: The function returns the subtraction of two numbers $num1 and $num2.

Examples:



Input : $num1=5 , $num2=10
Output : -5 

Input : $num1=7 , $num2=1

$sub = gmp_sub($num1, $num2); 
  
// gmp_strval converts GMP number to string 
// representation in given base(default 10).
echo gmp_strval($sub, 2);
?>
