well, depending on which way you want the results to be, negative or positive, its not actually different, well, reads these might give you more info. http://www.mathsisfun.com/positive-negative-integers.html

This is a bad question. Subtracting is not an operation
Really we are adding the additive inverse of a number, so now we are adding the additive inverse of an additive inverse.
\(a-(-b)=a+(-(-b))\). The one on the left is just an abuse in notation.

I should be very clear and say that subtraction is not an operation on the real numbers as a field because subtraction is not associative. But that was boring. . .
