Subtracting Integers

Subtracting Integers To subtract an integer, add its additive inverse.

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. a. n = 6 (-4)

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. a. n = 6 (-4) n = 6 (-4) To subtract 4, add 4

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. a. n = 6 (-4) n = 6 (-4) To subtract 4, add 4 n=6+4

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. a. n = 6 (-4) n = 6 (-4) To subtract 4, add 4 n=6+4 n = 10

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. b. (-3) (-7) = y

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. b. (-3) (-7) = y (-3) (-7) = y To subtract 7, add 7

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. b. (-3) (-7) = y (-3) (-7) = y To subtract 7, add 7 (-3) + 7 = y

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. b. (-3) (-7) = y (-3) (-7) = y To subtract 7, add 7 (-3) + 7 = y 4=y

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. c. (-11) 5 = u

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. c. (-11) 5 = u (-11) 5 = u To subtract 5, add 5

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. c. (-11) 5 = u (-11) 5 = u To subtract 5, add 5 (-11) + (-5) = u

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. c. (-11) 5 = u (-11) 5 = u To subtract 5, add 5 (-11) + (-5) = u -16 = u

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. d. x = 13 15

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. d. x = 13 15 x = 13 15 To subtract 15, add 15

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. d. x = 13 15 x = 13 15 To subtract 15, add 15 x = 13 + (-15)

Subtracting Integers
Example Solve each equation. d. x = 13 15 x = 13 15 To subtract 15, add 15 x = 13 + (-15) x = -2
