# (a) Write a pair of negative integers whose difference gives 8

(b) Write a negative integer and a positive integer whose sum is -5

(c) Write a negative integer and a positive integer whose difference is -3

**Solution:**

a) Let us have -2 and -10

Difference = - 2 - (-10)

= - 2 + 10

= 8

b) Let us have -10 and 5

Sum = -10 + 5

= -5

c) Let us have -2 and 1

Difference = -2 - 1

= -3
