Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    (-4) - (-1) =

    Explanation
    The given expression (-4) - (-1) can be simplified by subtracting the negative value inside the parentheses. A double negative becomes a positive, so (-4) - (-1) is equivalent to -4 + 1. When we add -4 and 1, we get -3 as the result.

    19 - (-9) =

    Explanation
    The given question is a subtraction problem where we subtract a negative number from a positive number. When we subtract a negative number, it is the same as adding its positive value. Therefore, subtracting -9 is equivalent to adding 9. So, 19 - (-9) can be rewritten as 19 + 9, which equals 28.

    13 - 24 =

    Explanation
    The given equation 13 - 24 = -11 is solved by subtracting 24 from 13. When we subtract 24 from 13, we get -11. Therefore, the answer to the equation is -11.

    4 - 15 =

    Explanation
    The given question is a subtraction problem. When we subtract 15 from 4, we get -11.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    25 - (-23) =

    Explanation
    When you subtract a negative number, it's equivalent to adding the positive value of that number. So, -(-23) is the same as +23. Therefore, 25 - (-23) becomes 25 + 23, which equals 48.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    -19 - 12 =

    Explanation
    When you subtract 12 from -19, you are essentially moving 12 units in the negative direction from -19 on the number line. This takes you to a position that is 31 units less than -19. Since you are moving in the negative direction, the result is negative, and the answer is -31.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    (-5) - 12 =

    Explanation
    The given expression is (-5) - 12. To simplify this expression, we subtract 12 from -5. When we subtract a positive number from a negative number, the result becomes more negative. So, -5 minus 12 is equal to -17.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    (-18) - (-24) =

    Explanation
    The given expression (-18) - (-24) can be simplified by removing the double negative sign. When subtracting a negative number, it is equivalent to adding the positive of that number. Therefore, (-18) - (-24) becomes (-18) + 24, which equals 6.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    3 - 7 =

    Explanation
    The given question asks for the result of subtracting 7 from 3. When we subtract 7 from 3, we get a negative number, specifically -4.
