What if, we need to get the distance value between UInt64 values.

Following case would works fine.

`let distance = UInt64(2) - UInt64(1)`

But, how about this case?

This code case overflow.

`let distance = UInt64(1) - UInt64(2)`

In Swift, we can use `.distance`

method to get the distance value.

```
UInt64(2).distance(to: UInt64(1)) // -1
UInt64(1).distance(to: UInt64(2)) // 1
```
