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!
