# What is rule of subtraction integers?

###### Wiki User

if they are two positive numbers, do it normally.

• If there is a negative and a positive, change it to addition and switch the SECOND integer sign. Only works with two integers in a subtraction question.

Example: (-32)-(+2)= (-34) / (-32)+(-2)=(-34)

Integers are closed under subtraction, meaning that any subtraction problem with integers has a solution in the set of integers.

Integers are whole numbers as for example 28 minus 17 = 11

The answer depends on which binary operation you mean when you say "combining". Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, etc.

They are different in the same way that subtraction of integers is different from their addition.

Yes, the set of integers is closed under subtraction.

Subtraction of integers is essentially addition of integers except the second integer is inverted. For example: 5 + 3 = 8 is a simple addition of integers. 5 - 3 = 5 is a simple subtraction of integers. It can be expressed by inverting the second value (the one right after the subration sign) and then switching the subtraction sign to an addition sign. So it would look like: 5 + (-3) = 5. Note that (-3) is the opposite of 3. So to do a more confusing subtraction problem like: 55 - (-5), we could rewrite this as: 55 + -(-5). From here it's easy to see that the two negatives cancel out. 55 + 5 = 60.

It is normal subtraction. if the tw numbers are x and y then the subtraction is x-y

To find the sum of integers, you use addition.To find the difference, you use subtraction.

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

Example 1:+5 - +2Step 1:The opposite of +2 is -2.Step 2:Subtraction becomes addition.Solution:+5 - +2 = +5 + -2 = +3

negetive integers are not closed under addition but positive integers are.

They are whole numbers used in division, multiplication, addition and subtraction.

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

Rule 1: The term is integer, not interger.Rule 2: The answer depends on what you want to do with it or them.

yes, because an integer is a positive or negative, rational, whole number. when you subject integers, you still get a positive or negative, rational, whole number, which means that under the closure property of real numbers, the set of integers is closed under subtraction.

Subtraction: Yes. Division: No. 2/4 = is not an integer, let alone an even integer.

To be closed under an operation, when that operation is applied to two member of a set then the result must also be a member of the set. Thus the sets &#8450; (Complex numbers), &#8477; (Real Numbers), &#8474; (Rational Numbers) and &#8484; (integers) are closed under subtraction. &#8484;+ (the positive integers), &#8484;- (the negative integers) and &#8469; (the natural numbers) are not closed under subtraction as subtraction can lead to a result which is not a member of the set.
