Practice Exercises on Subtraction of Integers

To answer the exercises below, it is assumed that you have already finished reading addition of integers and subtraction of integers.

In subtraction of integers, we have learned two rules:

(1) a – b = a + (-b)
(2) a – (-b) = a + b

We will use these rules in answering the exersises below.

Exercises

1. 2 – 5
2. 18 – ( – 2)
3. 16 – 7
4. -17 – 3
5. -9 – (-3)
6. 0 – (-11)
7. -18 – (-25)
8. -10 – 9
9. 12 – (-9)
10. -6 – 3

Solutions/Answers

1. 2 – 5

Solution 1: 5 is greater than 2. If you subtract two numbers, if the subtrahend is larger than the minuend, the answer will be negative. So, the answer is -3.

Solution 2: From rule 1, a – b = a + (-b), so 2 + 5 = 2 + (-5) = -3
Answer:

2. 18 – ( – 2)

Solution: From rule 2, a – (-b) = a + b, so 18 + 2 = 20.

Answer: 20

3. 16 – 7

Answer: 9

4. -17 – 3

Solution: From rule 1, -17 – 3 = -17 + (- 3) = -20. Recall that in adding two negative numbers, we just add the numbers and then the answer will be negative.

Answer: -20

5. -9 – (-3)

Solution: From rule 2, -9 – (-3) = -9 + 3 = -6.

6. 0 – (-11)

Solution: From rule 2, 0 – (-11) = 0 + 11 = 11.

7. -18 – (-25)

Solution: From rule 2, a –(-b) = a + b. So, -18 + 25 = 7.

8. -10 – 9

Solution: From rule 1, a – b = a + (-b), so -10 + (- 9) = – 19.

9. 12 – (-9)

Solution: From rule 2, a –(-b) = a + b, so 12 + 9 = 21.

10.- 6 – 3

Solution: From rule 1, a – b = a + (-b) = -6 + -3 = -9.

The Operations on Integers Series

In the previous post, I have mentioned that it is important for you to master basic mathematics. One of the basic skills that you should master is operations on integers. Luckily, I have finished writing all the tutorials and reviewers for all the operations on integers.  They are listed below.

  1. How add Integers (Practice Test with SolutionsQuiz 1)
  2. How to Subtract Positive and Negative Integers ( Practice Test with SolutionsQuiz 1)
  3. How to Multiply Integers (Practice Test with Solutions , Quiz 1Quiz 2)
  4. Dividing Positive and Negative Integers (Practice Test  with SolutionQuiz)

Good luck and have fun. I will be posting the quizzes and PDF exercises soon, so keep posted.
