1. change the subtract to an add and switch the sign of the second.

2. follow rules for addition.

-same sign is adding and keep the sign

-different sign is subtract and take the sign of the bigger number

what are some examples of subtracting integers

adding and subtracting integers is when you add and minus 2 numbers

there are no algorithms for subtracting algorithms!!!

The subtacting integers is EWAN ko hahahah!!

Integers are whole numbers, both positive and negative. Therefore, adding and subtracting integers would be adding and subtracting whole numbers. Examples: 8+2 -8+2 8-2 -8-2

Let x and y be two integers. x - y = x + (-y)

I would think that the commonality of adding and subtracting integers is that the answer itself will always be an integer. In other words, the answer is always gonna be a "whole number".

They become positive integers for instance - - 2 = 2

adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing

to subtrct integers ,rewrite as adding opposites and use the rules for addtion of integers..

None, because the set of integers and the set of whole numbers is the same.

When adding negative integers, you subtract. (2+-1=1) When subtracting negative integers, you add. (2--3=5)

to subtract an integer, add its opposite or additive inverse.

Because that is how the opposite of a number is defined.

Subtracting two positive fractional numbers, or adding one positive and one negative integer.

Well the subtraction of integers is not a comunative because it's not a property it can't be true it's a algebraic equation

It's pretty much the exact same. Subtracting is the same as adding a negative number. Foe example, five minus three is the same as five plus negative three.

To subtract integers u use kcc aka keep change change on the sighn and then u subtract normaly.

The answer will have the same sign as the number with the larger magnitude.

if the signs are the same you must add its opposite.

They aren't. The rules are the same as those for adding/subtracting or multiplying integers. Just be careful of the decimal point's location.

It can be a problem to do with adding or subtracting or exponents.

No- adding negative numbers is like adding positive numbesr , except the answer is negative.
