Teaching Subtracting Signed Number Easily


  •  Whenever, we subtract two numbers of the same sign, you can just change the number of the sign that is being subtracted.


  •  However, the subtraction problems can be represented only horizontally.

According to the question, both the numbers are of different signs. Hence, we can easily subtract them.

So, + 3 - 5 = -2.
