    x-y=. 2-3=-1

    x(y)=. 2(3)=6

    x+y= 2+3= 5

    x/y= 2/3= 0.66……

    Therefore, x-y has the smallest value, that is -1.

    Answer:

      x – y = -1

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The value of the first expression is negative:

      2 – 3 = -1

    All of the other expressions give positive values, so are larger.

    The expression with the smallest value is x-y.

    _____

    If x(y) is supposed to mean x^y, the exponentiation operator is needed. Otherwise, it is interpreted as x·y.
