Subtraction 3 & 5 on number line

3 − 5 = 3 + (−5)

12 integers between.jpg

 

First we move 3 steps to the right from 0

And then , we move 5 steps to the left

  we reach −2
 

  ∴    3  −  5 = −2

 

Subtract (−3) & (−5) on number line

(−3) − (−5) = (−3) + 5

First we move 3 steps to the left from 0

And then , we move 5 steps to the right

  we reach 2

 

  ∴ (−3) − (−5) = 2

 

Subtract (−3) & (5) on number line

(−3) − 5 = (−3) + (−5)

First we move 3 steps to the left from 0

And then , we move 5 steps to the left

  we reach − 8
 

  ∴   (− 3) − 5 = −8

 

Subtract 3 & (−5) on number line

3 − (−5) = 3 + 5

First we move 3 steps to the right from 0

And then , we move 5 steps to the right

  we reach 8
 

  ∴ 3 − (−5) = 8
