Is there a way to simply x-x-x? I know that x+x+x can by simplifed as 3x, but what about subtraction? One would think that if multiplication is just a simplification of addition, then indeed, division is just a simplification of subtraction. I need to know this for an equation I have to make for a software :rofl: like always(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any help? x-x-x
