(iv) (-3) – (-7)
(v) (-1) – (-3) – (-8)
(vi) (+14) – (-10) – (+8) – (-6)

Solution:

(i) 5 – 6
=5 + 6
Take the inverse of the number which comes after the sign.
=5+(-6)
=5-6
=-1
(ii) (-4) – 3
=(-4) + 3
Take the inverse of the number which comes after the sign.
=-4+(-3)
=-4-3
=-7
(iii) 2 – (-9)
=(2) +(- 9)
Take the inverse of the number which comes after the sign.
=2+(+9)
=2 + 9
=11
(IV) (-3) – (-7)
=(-3) +(- 7)
Take the inverse of the number which comes after the sign.
=-3+(+7)
=4
(v) (-1) – (-3) – (-8)
=(-1) + (-3) +(- 8)
Take the inverse of the number which comes after the sign.
=1+3 +8
=12
(VI) (+14) – (-10) – (+8) – (-6)
=(+14) + (-10) +(+ 8)+ (-6)
Take the inverse of the number which comes after the sign.
=-14+(+10) +(-8) +(6)
=-14 +10 -8+6
=-22 +16
=-6

III. Solve the following
(i) (-5) – ……….. = 10
(ii) (-15) – ……….. = -5
(iii) (-8) – ……….. = 4
(iv) -25 – 18 = ………..
(v) 16 – 28 = ………..
(vi) -34-0=_____
(vii) 10-23=______

Solution:

(i) Let the number be x.
(-5)-(x)=10
x=-10-5
x=-15
so,(-5)-(-15)=10
(ii) Let the number be x.
(-15)-(x)=-5
x=-15+5
x=-10
so,(-15)-(-10)=-5
(iii) Let the number be x.
(-8)-(x)=4
x=-4-8
x=-12
so,(-8)-(-12)=-8+12=4
(iv) -25-18
=- 43
(v) 16-28
=16 +(-28)
=16-28
=-12
(vi) -34-0
=-34
(vii)10 – 23
=-13

IV. Write a negative integer and positive integer whose difference is 12.

Solution:

Let the positive integer and negative integer be 6, -6.
We subtract the smallest number from the bigger one.
i.e. 6-(-6)=6+6=12

V. Fill in the blanks
(i) To subtract (- 6) from 20, we add ……………… to 20.
(ii) To subtract 6 from – 20, we add ……………… to – 20.
(iii) The opposite (negative) of a negative integer is a ……………… integer.
(iv) If a and b are two integers then a + b is also a _____.

Solution:

(i) +6
(ii) -6
(iii) positive
(iv) integer

Vi. Rakesh borrowed Rs 500 from Anil. Rakesh also borrowed Rs 200 from Akhil. What is the total amount of debt?

Solution:

Given,
Rakesh borrowed from Anil=Rs 500
Rakesh also borrowed from Akhil=Rs 200
Rs 500 debt can be represented by= -500
Rs 200 debt can be represented bt=-200
The total amount of debt=-500-200=-500+-200=-700
Therefore, the total debt is Rs 700.

Vii. The record high temperature for Chennai is 580 Fahrenheit. The record low is -28 0Fahrenheit. What is the difference between high and low?

Solution:

Given,
The record high temperature for Chennai is =580 Fahrenheit
The record low temperature for Chennai is=-280 F
The difference between high and low is=58–28=58+28=860
Therefore, the difference between high and low temperatures is 86 F.

Viii. Ramesh has taken 10 steps forward and 5 steps backward. How many steps have you taken?

Solution:

Given,
Ramesh has taken forward steps=10
Ramesh has taken backward steps=-5
Ramesh has taken steps=10-5=5
Therefore, Ramesh has taken 5 steps.

ix. On a cold morning, the temperature was -50c. When he checked again after office, the temperature has dropped 50c. What was the temperature after office?

Solution:

Given,
On a cold morning, the temperature was= -50c
The temperature was dropped=50c
The temperature after office=-50c-50c=-100c
Hence, the temperature after office was -100c.

X. An elevator is on the fifteenth floor. It goes down 10 floors and then up 5 floors. What floor is the elevator on now?

Solution:

Given,
An elevator is on floor=15
It goes down floors=10
