The difference between integers x and -6 is -5 . Find the value of x

Given that ,

The difference between integers x and -6 is -5

So the equation becomes

x -(-6)=-5 ———(i) ( We know that – X – = +)

x+6=-5

x=-5 -6

x = -11

Hence the other integer is -11

We can also verify if the answer is right.

Substitute the obtained value of x in the equation(i)

-11 – (-6)

-11 +6 ( We know that – X – = +)

= -5

Hence it satisfies the given condition. So -11 is the right answer.
