17 and 3 are prime numbers with a difference of 14.

The difference when subtracting the prime number 2 from the prime number 127 is 125. No other two prime numbers added together or subtracted from each other have a sum or difference of 125. All primes except the number 2 are odd numbers, and two odd numbers added together or subtracted will always produce an even sum or difference.

There is a difference of 95 when the prime number 2 is subtracted from the prime number 97.

Difference

If you are asking what the result is called, there are two terms for it: difference, and remainder.

The numbers that are subtracted are called subtrahends. (if a - b = c then a is the minuend, b is the subtrahend and c is the result.)

When you subtract one number from another, the result is called the difference. What does your question mean? If by "when two whole numbers are subtracted" you mean that you subtract one whole number from the minuend, and then you subtract another whole number from the difference, then the answer you get is another difference. In effect, you have one minuend and two subtrahends.
