Lesson 1.4 Subtract Integers

Quick Review
To subtract integers, use the additive inverse to write an equivalent addition expression. Then follow the rules for addition. When the signs are the same, find the sum of the absolute values. When the signs are different, find the difference. Use the sign of the number with the greater absolute value.

Example
Find -7 – (8).
-7 + (-8) = -15
The signs are the same, so the sum has the same sign as the addends.

Find -7 – (-8).
-7 + 8 = 1
The signs are different, so the sign of the difference is the same sign as the integer (8) with the greater absolute value, which is positive.

The same rules for dividing integers apply to dividing all rational numbers. The quotient is positive when the numbers being divided have the same signs. The quotient is negative when the numbers being divided have different signs. Complex fractions have a fraction in the numerator, the denominator, or both. To divide by a fraction, rewrite as multiplication by its multiplicative inverse, or reciprocal.

Example
Simplify \(\frac{-\frac{3}{4}}{\frac{15}{24}}\)
\(-\frac{3}{4} \div \frac{15}{24}=-\frac{3}{4} \cdot \frac{24}{15}=-\frac{72}{60}=-\frac{6}{5}=-1 \frac{1}{5}\)
