Question

The subtraction of rational numbers is commutative


  1. True

  2. False


Solution

The correct option is B

False


For two given numbers a and b,

If a + b = b + a then they are called commutative.

For subtraction a - b should be equal to b - a

If we take any 2 random numbers 2 and 12

a - b = 2 - 12 = 2 + 12212 or 52

b - a = 12 - 2 = 14252 which is  52

Hence , the given statement is false.
