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

(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 |

(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 ……………… .
