The rules for addition are as follows:

  • The sum of two negative integers is a negative integer
  • The sum of two positive integers is a positive integer

The rules for subtraction are as follows:

  • If they are two positive numbers, do it normally
  • If there is a negative and a positive ,change it to addition and switch the SECOND integer sign

Explain how the subtraction of integers is related to the addition of integers?

Subtraction of integers is essentially addition of integers except the second integer is inverted. For example: 5 + 3 = 8 is a simple addition of integers. 5 - 3 = 5 is a simple subtraction of integers. It can be expressed by inverting the second value (the one right after the subration sign) and then switching the subtraction sign to an addition sign. So it would look like: 5 + (-3) = 5. Note that (-3) is the opposite of 3. So to do a more confusing subtraction problem like: 55 - (-5), we could rewrite this as: 55 + -(-5). From here it's easy to see that the two negatives cancel out. 55 + 5 = 60.
