to subtrct integers ,rewrite as adding opposites and use the rules for addtion of integers..

They become positive integers for instance - - 2 = 2

what are some examples of subtracting integers

adding and subtracting integers is when you add and minus 2 numbers

They aren't. The rules are the same as those for adding/subtracting or multiplying integers. Just be careful of the decimal point's location.

there are no algorithms for subtracting algorithms!!!

The subtacting integers is EWAN ko hahahah!!

Adding integers, if they have the same sign, add their absolute values and keep the same sign. Subtracting, change the sign of the 2nd number and the add using rules of addition. Multiplying and dividing, Divide the absolute values, if the signs are the same the answer is positive, if the signs are different the answer is negative.

Integers are whole numbers, both positive and negative. Therefore, adding and subtracting integers would be adding and subtracting whole numbers. Examples: 8+2 -8+2 8-2 -8-2

no.

when you add two positive integers the answer is always positive when you add two negative integers the answer is positive when you add one negative and on positive integer, the answer is negative subtracting two negative numbers gets a negative answer subtracting two positive numbers- the answer depends subtracting a negative and positive number- the answer depends, the positive number would have to be bigger than the negative to achieve a negative number, and if the positive number is less, than the answer is still negative

Let x and y be two integers. x - y = x + (-y)

I would think that the commonality of adding and subtracting integers is that the answer itself will always be an integer. In other words, the answer is always gonna be a "whole number".

adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing

no

1+1 = 2 2-1 = 1

There are two basic rules for subtracting integers. If the integer you're subtracting is positive, then you decrease the value of the integer that it's being subtracted from by that amount. For example, 8 - 3 = 5 and 3 - 8 = -5. If the integer you're subtracting is negative, then you increase the value of the integer that it's being subtracted from by that amount. For example, 8 - (-3) = 11 and 3 - (-8) = 11 as well.

(-4)-(-9)=5

look in a dictionary

-You must memorize -To add 2 integers with different signs, find the difference of their absolute value -To subtract an integer, add it's opposite

None, because the set of integers and the set of whole numbers is the same.
