# Is the difference of any two negative integers a negative integer?

Integers are the numbers that can be positive, negative, zero, or numbers with no fractional part.

## Answer: The difference of any two negative integers is a negative integer. The statement is not necessarily true.

We will take an example by considering two negative integers.

**Explanation:**

This statement is not necessarily true. For example, let's take two negative integers, -7 and -9

Now consider the difference: -7 - (-9) = -7 + 9 = 2

Here, 2 is a positive integer.

### Therefore, the difference of any two negative integers is a negative integer. The statement is not necessarily true.
