Working on some Laplace transforms, and my lack of knowledge of some properties of exponential functions is coming back to bite me(again). I'm stuck trying to figure out if:

e^(-pi*s) - e^(-2pi*s) = e^(-pi*s - (-2pi*s))

Is a true statement or not. I've searched around the internet trying to find properties of adding/subtracting exponential functions, but I couldn't find anything.
