SUBTRACTION OF INTEGERS -
Subtraction of integers involves finding the difference between two integers. It is a fundamental arithmetic operation that follows specific rules based on the signs of the integers being subtracted. Let's explore the rules and examples of subtracting integers:
Here are a few more examples to illustrate these concepts:
When performing subtraction of integers, you can use the number line as a visual aid, just like in integer addition. Moving to the left on the number line represents subtraction. The distance you move corresponds to the absolute value of the integer being subtracted.
Understanding these rules and practicing with examples will help you build a solid foundation in subtracting integers and enhance your overall mathematical skills.
