"?"..."!" (Posted on 2011-02-11) Difficulty: 2 of 5

If the sum of 19968 and 22235 is expressed as 0063, and the product of 20108 and 19977 as 0362, then how would the difference between 20845 and 20116 be rendered?

On reflection, I seem to remember that it was actually your own puzzle "Foundation Piece" that gave me the idea for this one.
