Gradient of the difference of two scalar point functions

If f and g are two scalar point functions, then prove that
grad ( f - g ) = grad f - grad g
that is, ( f - g ) = f - g

that is, gradient of ( f - g ) = gradient of f - gradient of g

Gradient of the difference of two scalar point functions

If f and g are two scalar point functions, then prove that
grad ( f - g ) = grad f - grad g
that is, ( f - g ) = f - g

that is, gradient of ( f - g ) = gradient of f - gradient of g
