• Last Updated : 02 Nov, 2019

In Scala, Double is a 64-bit floating point number, which is equivalent to Java’s double primitive type. The -(x: Double) method is utilized to get the difference of given Double and Double value.

Method Definition – def -(x: Char): Double

Returns – Returns the difference of this value and x.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program to explain working ``// of Double -(x: Double) function`` ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ `` ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``     ` `        ``// Applying -(x: Double) function``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``66.01230``).toDouble.- (``65.00000``:``Double)``         ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``     ` `    ``}``} `
Output:

```1.0122999999999962
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program to explain working``// of Double -(x: Double ) function`` ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ `` ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``     ` `        ``// Applying -(x: Double ) function``        ``val` `result ``=` `11.86000000``.toDouble.- (``10.22500``:``Double)``         ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``     ` `    ``}``} `
Output:
```1.6349999999999998
```
