# Write two integers which are smaller than – 6 but their difference is greater than – 6.

Answer :

There are number of integers smaller than -6, namely

-7, -8, -9, -10, -11, …

By observation, subtract -8 and -9.

Difference = -8 – (-9)

⇒ Difference = -8 + 9 [minus & minus = plus]

⇒ Difference = 1, which is greater than -6 [Since, 9 is greater amongst 8 and 9 so the result would have a positive sign]

Thus, -8 and -9 are one of such integers.
