I remember going through this in school. Hold on let me think.. I think to subtract an integer, you have to add the opposite. Lets say you're subtracting a negative number. Just make it positive and add instead of subtracting. Example: -2 - (-15) Now, turn that problem into: -2 + 15 Your answer is 13 Or lets say your problem is:  -13 - 5 Turn that problem into: -13 + (-5) Your answer -18 Haha, I'ma nerd XD Hope I helped! smile Good luck.

Hi..
