e.g.

int x, y, z;

x = Convert.ToInt32(textBox1.Text);
y = Convert.ToInt32(textBox2.Text);
z = Convert.ToInt32(textBox3.Text);

x -= z;
y -= z;

textBox1.Text = x.ToString();
textBox2.Text = y.ToString();

If it possible that either string is not a number then do not forget error handling when converting. Look at using TryParse

for example

int  x
bool result = Int32.TryParse(textBox1.Text, out x)
if (!result) {
   // do something to handle error
}

    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

   
        private void textBox3_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            double x, y, z;
            x = Convert.ToDouble(textBox1.Text);

XK8ER do not forget that if a non-numeric entry is made in the textbox then the code will throw an error

Well, since you wrote:

and take away 10 from second string displaying like this "1187.9"

...instead of:

and take away .10 from second string displaying like this "1187.9"

...I'm sure you can appreciate why it was unclear what you wanted. Oh well.
