While solving problems with large integers, don't always rely on the number line. Using integer arithmetic we can solve the problem of large integer. We need a rule for subtracting integers and the rule is: Rule: To subtract an integer, add its opposite.

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

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

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".

There are two basic rules for subtracting integers. If the integer you're subtracting is positive, then you decrease the value of the integer that it's being subtracted from by that amount. For example, 8 - 3 = 5 and 3 - 8 = -5. If the integer you're subtracting is negative, then you increase the value of the integer that it's being subtracted from by that amount. For example, 8 - (-3) = 11 and 3 - (-8) = 11 as well.

The rule for subtracting negative numbers is 'when you are subtracting a negative number from a positive or negative, you must always add it.'Example: 3--3 = 3+3 = 6

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

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.

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