Well, it isn't in general! If you forgot to include the hypotheses that f and g are themselves integrable, then you can use the fact that |f- g|= f- g as long as f(x)> g(x) and |f- g|= g- f as long as f(x)< g(x).

If are integrable then are integrable.
And if is integrable then is integrable.
Therefore, if are integrable then is integrable and that implies is integrable.
