It can be greater than, equal or less than the original integer. There are three possible values for the second integer: It is positive, in which case the result will be less than the original integer, eg 5 - 2 = 3 and 3 It is zero, in which case the result will be the same as the original integer, eg 5 - 0 = 5 and 5 = 5;It is negative, in which case the result will be greater than the original integer, eg 5 - -2 = 7 and 7 > 5.
