Key Concept:
Subtracting integers is the opposite of adding integers. Instead of subtracting, we are going to add the opposite.
To subtract integers on a number line:
✓ 
To subtract two integers, we can rewrite the subtraction equation as an 

equation. 

✓ 
Subtraction is the same as adding the 
. 

✓ 
Just 
CHANGE CHANGE. 

Examples: Rewrite each subtraction equation as an equivalent addition equation. Then solve. 

1) 
10 – 4 = 
2) 
2 – 8 =

Key Concept: Here is a review of adding and subtracting integers.
ADDING integers with the SAME signs 
ADDING integers with DIFFERENT signs 
SUBTRACTING integers 
✓ ADD their absolute values 
✓ SUBTRACT their absolute values 
✓ Rewrite the subtraction equation as ADDING the inverse (opposite) 
✓ KEEP the sign 
✓ Keep the sign of the integer with the 
✓ KEEP CHANGE CHANGE 
GREATER ABSOLUTE VALUE 
✓ Use ADDITION rules 
Today we will apply these rules to solve word problems involving adding and subtracting integers.
Examples: Write and solve a number sentence to represent each situation. (HIGHLIGHT ANY KEY PHRASES)
