# PROBLEM:

Given A and B, print the difference between A+B and A\times B.

# EXPLANATION:

As the statement says, simply print the difference between A+B and A\times B, i.e,

|(A+B)-(A\times B)|

In most languages, you can use the `abs`

function to do this.

Alternatively, you can use `if`

conditions to check which of A+B and A\times B is larger, and subtract the smaller from the larger.

# TIME COMPLEXITY

\mathcal{O}(1) per testcase.

# CODE:

## Editorialist's code (Python)

```
a, b = map(int, input().split())
print(abs(a*b - (a + b)))
```
