This is my second post. I hope to explain myself better, so I can find a
solution.

A              B    
            
10              Declining difference    
4                6    =A1-A2
8                -2    =(B2-A3)

I want to know the remaining positive number which is 4, not -2            
If I begin with 10 and keep subtracting numbers, I want to end up with
a non-negative number.
Subtracting 10-4=6
Subtracting 6-8=-2, bit what I want is the number 4, the "remaining"
amount.

Thanks!
