Write a positive integer and a negative integer whose difference is a negative integer.
There are a number of solutions possible in this case.
But we need to keep in mind to take a negative integer first and then subtract a positive integer from that.
What if we do the opposite? Let us take a positive integer first = 11 (say)
Now, let us take a negative integer at second = -14 (say)
Subtract second integer from first,
Difference = 11 – (-14)
⇒ Difference = 11 + 14 [minus & minus = plus, in addition as well as in multiplication and division]
⇒ Difference = 25, which is a positive integer not a negative integer.
That’s why we need to do the exact opposite.
First, take negative integer = -14
Then, take positive integer = 11
Now, subtract first integer from second,
Difference = -14 – 11 [minus & minus = plus, in addition, multiplication and division; also, the greatest number’s sign is taken in the final result]
⇒ Difference = -25, which is a negative integer.
Thus, answer is -14 and 11.
