Which sets of numbers are closed under subtraction?

To be closed under an operation, when that operation is applied to two member of a set then the result must also be a member of the set. Thus the sets ℂ (Complex numbers), ℝ (Real Numbers), ℚ (Rational Numbers) and ℤ (integers) are closed under subtraction. ℤ+ (the positive integers), ℤ- (the negative integers) and ℕ (the natural numbers) are not closed under subtraction as subtraction can lead to a result which is not a member of the set.

Is the set of whole numbers closed under subtraction?

It depends on your definition of whole numbers. The classic definition of whole numbers is the set of counting numbers and zero. In this case, the set of whole numbers is not closed under subtraction, because 3-6 = -3, and -3 is not a member of this set. However, if you use whole numbers as the set of all integers, then whole numbers would be closed under subtraction.


Is the set of irrational numbers closed under subtraction?

No; here's a counterexample to show that the set of irrational numbers is NOT closed under subtraction: pi - pi = 0. pi is an irrational number. If you subtract it from itself, you get zero, which is a rational number. Closure would require that the difference(answer) be an irrational number as well, which it isn't. Therefore the set of irrational numbers is NOT closed under subtraction.


Is natural numbers a closed set under subtraction?

No.A set is closed under subtraction if when you subtract any two numbers in the set, the answer is always a member of the set.The natural numbers are 1,2,3,4, ... If you subtract 5 from 3 the answer is -2 which is not a natural number.
