## How to Subtract Integers?

While subtracting two integers, we come across the following cases:

**Subtraction of two positive number**s- While subtracting two positive numbers we take the difference of absolute values of both the numbers and attach the sign of the greater number with the answer.**Subtraction of a positive number and a negative number**- While subtracting a positive and a negative number, we take the sum of the absolute values of both the numbers and attach the sign of the minuend with the answer.**Subtraction of two negative numbers**- While subtracting two negative numbers, we just have to remember one rule that whenever there is a negative sign outside the bracket, the sign of the term inside the bracket will be changed. Then, we take the difference of the absolute values of both the numbers and attach the revised sign of the greater number with the answer.

**Solved Example:**

Subtract (-9) from 5.

**Solution:**

To subtract (-9) from 5 means that we can write it as:

5 - (-9)

Here we are subtracting a negative integer and a positive integer, so the answer will be:

5 - (-9) = 5 + 9

= 14

∴ 5 - (-9) = 14.

Now, use the above calculator to find the difference of the following integers:

- Subtract 9 from (-2)
- Subtract (-45) from (-30)
