is integers associative under subtraction? explain with suitable examples.

No integers are not associative under subtraction.
 Ex-a-(b-c)is not equal to (a-b)-c
 Let a=2,b=3 and c=4

Therefore L.H.S is not equal to R.H.S.
Therefore a-(b-c) is not equal to (a-b)-c,that implies that integers are not closed under subtraction.
