adding its opposite?
adding a negative
adding a negative
Subtracting a negative integer is the same as adding its absolute value.
Adding is the opposite of subtracting
In the end, there is no difference because subtracting a negative integer is the same as adding a positive integer. 1-(-1)=2 1+1=2
They are different because they both heve negative and positive.

Because of the definition of addition and subtraction. When looking at a real number line: when you add you move to the left or up, when you add the opposite of a number you move in the opposite direction.
I would think that the commonality of adding and subtracting integers is that the answer itself will always be an integer. In other words, the answer is always gonna be a "whole number".
Subtracting a negative is like adding a positive.
Subtracting an integer is the same as adding its opposite.Examples:In the following examples, we convert the subtracted integer to its opposite, and add the two integers.7 - 4 = 7 + (-4) = 312 - (-5) = 12 + (5) = 17-8 - 7 = -8 + (-7) = -15-22 - (-40) = -22 + (40) = 18Note that the result of subtracting two integers could be positive or negative.
Before adding or subtracting two fractions they are converted into like fractions. Explain with examples why this is necessary.
Adding a negative is the same as subtracting a positive. 9 - 9 = 0 9 + (-9) = 0
Subtracting an integer is the same as adding the additive inverse. In symbols: a - b = a + (-b), where "-b" is the additive inverse (the opposite) of b.
by adding, subtracting, dividing, and multiplying.
-You must memorize -To add 2 integers with different signs, find the difference of their absolute value -To subtract an integer, add it's opposite
Subtracting two positive fractional numbers, or adding one positive and one negative integer.
Doubling and subtracting 1
The result of adding and integer and its opposite is negation. A + (-A) = 0 For all real integers. It has the effect of adding 0 to a sum. Example: 32 + 16 + (-16) + 5 = 37 = 32 + 0 + 5.
Subtracting a fraction is the same as adding its negative.
I learned to always change the denominators before adding or subtracting the numerators. You must always have a common denominator before adding or subtracting.
