# Write two integer

There are number of integers that are smaller than -5, namely

-6, -7, -8, -9, -10, -11, -12, …

We need to do this type of question by hit and trial basis. So, take a look at the integers smaller than -5. We know that the smallest of positive integers that when subtracted give us 5 are 11 and 6. [ 11 – 6 = 5]

So, try subtracting the same numbers but with negative sign.

Difference = -11 – (-6)

Difference = -11 + 6 [minus & minus = plus]

Difference = -5 [ 11 is the greatest number of 11 and 6, so the sign before 11 would be taken in the result]

Similarly, there are other pair of integers satisfying the condition.

Thus, -6 and -11 are one of such integers.
