6-41.

Simplify each expression.

1.  $−2−0$

Subtracting zero from another integer will not have an impact. However, subtracting an integer from zero will make a difference in simplifying the expression. Keep this in mind for parts (a), (b), and (c).

1.  $0−(−4)$

1.  $0−2$

1.  $−8−(−6)$

Remember to pay close attention to each of the signs. Subtracting negatives can be tricky!

$−2$

1.  $−8−6$

1.  $8−(−6)$

$14$

1.  $−15−4$

Be sure to show your work! And remember, subtracting integers is like taking steps backwards, but subtracting negative integers is like moving forward.

$−19$

1.  $−15−(−4)$

$−11$

1.  $15 − \left(−4\right)$

$19$
