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

An integer is any number that is not expressed as a fractional component. Integers form of the list of numbers as: ,..., -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4,...,.

## Answer: The possible values of x are (-15) and (-3) as the difference between any of these two integers and (-9) is 6.

Let us consider the conditions given in the question to find the required numbers.

**Explanation:**

Since we have to find different values of x such that the difference between x and (-9) is 6, let us see in how many ways can we take the difference between x and (-9):

(-9) - x or x - (-9)

Since we know the difference between x and (-9) is 6:

(-9) - x = 6

or. -9 = 6 + x

or, x = -9 - 6 = -15

Also, x - (-9) = 6

or, x + 9 = 6

or, x = 6 - 9

or, x = -3

### Therefore, the two possible values of x are (-15) and (-3).
