# Worksheet on Subtracting Integers

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on subtracting integers. We know that the difference of any two integers is always an integer.

 I. Subtract the following:(i) + 9 from + 12 (ii) + 15 from - 21 (iii) - 42 from + 74 (iv) - 10 from + 25 (v) 7 from 15 (vi) +7 from -15 (vii) -7 from +15 (viii) -7 from 15 (ix) 346 from 293 (x) -80 from 0 (xi) 0 from+39 (xii) -59 from -100 (xiii) -350 from 200 (xiv) 63 from -63 (xv) 0 from -247 (xvi) -55 from +55
 II. Fill in the blanks:(i) (-9) - ……….. = 15 (ii) (-17) - ……….. = -4 (iii) (-9)  - ……….. = 3 (iv) -15 – 27 = ……….. (v) 15 – 27 = ……….. (vi) -15 – 0 = ……….. (vii) 0 – 27 = ……….. (viii) 0 – (-27) = ……….. (ix) (-8) - ……….. = -3 (x) ……….. – (-5) = +13

III. Subtract the following integers:

(i) 8 - 9

(ii) (-5) - 9

(iii) 6 – (-8)

(iv) (-4) – (-6)

(v) (-2) – (-4) – (-6)

(vi) (+18) – (-12) – (+6) – (-9)

IV. Fill in the blanks:

(i) To subtract (- 8) from 16, we add ……………… to 16.

(ii) To subtract 8 from - 16, we add ……………… to - 16.

(iii) The opposite (negative) of a negative integer is a ……………… integer.

(iv) If a and b are two integers then a + b is also ……………… .
