NS1.2 Add, subtract , multiply, and divide rational numbers (integers, fractions, and terminating decimals) and take positive rational numbers to whole-number powers. NS2.5 Understand the meaning of the absolute value of a number; interpret the absolute value as the distance of the number from zero on a number line; and determine the absolute value of real numbers.

When you subtract a positive integer, the difference is less than the original number. Therefore, you move to the left on the number line. To subtract a negative integer, you move to the right . You can also subtract an integer by adding its opposite. You can then use the rules for addition of integers.
