The difference between an integer x and (-9) is 6 . Find all possible values of x.

Given: The difference between an integer x and (-9) is 6

We need to find all possible values of x

Solution:

As per the given conditions, two equations can be formed:

x – (-9) = 6——(i)

-9 – x = 6 ———-(ii)

Will solve the equations one by one

Let us solve equation (i) first

x – (-9) = 6

=>x+9=6

=> x= 6 – 9

=> x=-3

Now solving equation (ii)

-9 – x = 6

=> -x= 6 +9

=> -x= 15

=> x= -15

So the possible value of x are x=-3 and x= -15
