Q. 119 D5.0( 3 Votes )

Write a positive integer and a negative integer whose difference is a positive integer.

Answer :

Though there are number of possible answers, take a positive integer first and then a negative integer.


Positive integer = 8 (say)


Negative integer = -12 (say)


Now, keep in mind to subtract negative integer from positive integer in order to get a positive integer.


Difference = 8 – (-12)


Difference = 8 + 12 [minus & minus = plus, in addition, subtraction and division]


Difference = 20, which is positive integer.


Thus, 8 and -12 are such integers.
