# If the difference between 14 and 5 is less than 6, add 2; if it is greater than 7, subtract 4. What is the correct answer?

**Solution:**

Given if the difference between 14 and 5 is less than 6, then add 2 to the result. If the result is greater than 7, then subtract 4.

If 14 -5 < 6, add 2 to the result.

If 14 -5 > 7, subtract 4 from the result.

We can clearly see that the result of 14-5 = 9 which is greater than 7.

Hence, we need to subtract 4 from 9. ⇒ 9-4=5

So, the correct answer is 5.

## If the difference between 14 and 5 is less than 6, add 2; if it is greater than 7, subtract 4. What is the correct answer?

**Summary :**

If the difference between 14 and 5 is less than 6, add 2; if it is greater than 7, subtract 4, then the correct answer is 5.
