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

An integer is a number with no decimal or fractional part, from the set of negative and positive numbers, including zero

Answer: The value of x for which the difference between integers x and -6 is -5 is -11

Let's frame an equation according to the given question

Explanation:

According to the question,

x - (-6) = -5

=> x + 6 = -5

=> x = -5 - 6       (Bytransposing terms)

=> x = -11

Thus, the value of x for which the difference between integers x and -6 is -5 is -11
