This is really easy but I just can't seem to get it.

Two men were talking about their ages. One said he was 94 years old. "Then," said the younger, "the sum of your age and mine multiplied by the difference will be 8512." How old was the young man.

I thought all i had to do was solve for x

(94-x)(94+x)=8512 but i get a larger number I kept doing it over and over thinking it was a foil mistake but its still wrong. I'm thinking I am gettin tripped up at "multiplied by the difference" the difference of what? If any one can help me it is greatly appreciated. Thanks
