1. 120-36 = 84

84 = 2*2*3*7

See what you can do with that.

2. (120)(-36)(x) = 120-36
-(36)(120)x = 84
x = -84/(36*120) = -7/360

so all we have to do is write -7/360 as the difference
e.g. -7/360 = 353/360 - 1

so 120 - 36 = (120)(-36)(353/360 - 1)

which is the product of the two numbers and another difference
