# Im subtracting integers and dont really understand. Can you explain what to do when you have to subtract two positives, what you have to do when subtracting a negative and positive, and what to do when you have two negatives?

+14 - (+21)

-25 - (-50)

-5 - (-8)

Thanks.

Okay this is really easy. + in these problems means positive. The first problem would actually just be 14 - 21 = ? 14 - 21 = -7

The second -25 - -50 is baisically adding the two so you get -75.The last one would be three
