The difference between a number and five equals three. Translate this sentence to an equation and then find the number. What is the answer?

since difference means subtract/- then the answer would most likely be 2 or -2. the problem would be (5 - 2) so If the teacher asks how much it takes to get to three from five say -2... but If they ask what the difference is subtract and your answer would be 2. Please rate this in the answers section and if you have any reasons you believe this isn't true I'd be happy to hear your explanation!
