The difference between a positive integer and a negative integer is ALWAYS positive.Suppose X and Y are positive so that -Y is negative,The the difference two numbers, A and B is A - B so the difference between X and (-Y) is X - (-Y) which equals X + Y. The sum of two positive numbers is always positive.

Difference of two natural numbers is not always a natural number.For any two natural numbers a and b, a-b = natural number only when a>b.Otherwise the result is a integer.No, e.g. 6 - 10 = -4. -4 is negative, so it is not a natural number.

An integer is not always a whole number because whole numbers are numbers 0 and up. Integers are numbers above and below 0. (Including negatives.) So therefore, if an integer is a negative, it would not be a whole number. But a whole number is always an integer.
