Wrong!

The answer is that it depends! It depends on the relative magnitudes of the two numbers.

If the magnitude of the first number is bigger, the answer is negative,

If the magnitude of the two numbers is the same, the answer is zero,

If the magnitude of the first number is smaller, the answer is positive.

For example,

-5 - (-2) = -3

-5 - (-5) = 0

-5 - (-7) = +2
