the sum of two whole numbers are 77 .their difference is 48.what are the two numbers
Yes, the difference of two whole numbers is always a whole number.
No. You can subtract two whole numbers and get a negative result. Whole numbers can't be negative.
1 and 0 are the two whole numbers with their sum same as their difference
A "difference between" requires two things: there is only one - whole numbers - in the question.
Different whole numbers are always whole numbers, but I suspect you meant to ask about the difference between whole numbers. You can subtract two whole numbers and get a negative result. Whole numbers can't be negative.
Difference of two whole number is not always a whole number.For any two whole numbers a & b, a - b = whole number only when a is greater than or equal to b.* * * * *Wrong!Even if a is less than b, the difference is still a whole number. Whole numbers can be negative.So the correct answer to the question is "YES".
When you subtract one number from another, the result is called the difference. What does your question mean? If by "when two whole numbers are subtracted" you mean that you subtract one whole number from the minuend, and then you subtract another whole number from the difference, then the answer you get is another difference. In effect, you have one minuend and two subtrahends.
The question cannot be answered because it is nonsensical. The difference between two rational numbers is very very rarely a whole number.
What is the difference between integers and whole numbers?
There is no counterexample because the set of whole numbers is closed under addition (and subtraction).
