what is the answer to "construct a segment whose length is EF - CD and by the way a segment symbol is above the EF and CD

• math -

I will assume the usual sloppy use of quotation marks and interpret the question as

construct a segment whose length is EF - CD

Set the compass to the length of CD
Mark that distance on EF
The remainder of segment EF is EF-CD
