Add the magnitudes of the integers (-4 has a magnitude of 4), then take the sign to the answer.
copy the sign then add :)
Add the magnitudes, keep the sign.
You simply add the numbers: the answer has a positive sign.
Because that is how the opposite of a number is defined.
Add their magnitudes, and keep the same sign for the sum.
ADDING: same sign, add and keep that sign. opposite sides, subtract their absolute values and use the sign of the number with the larger absolute value SUBRTRACTING: change the sign of the subtrahend (2nd number) then ADD using rules above.
If you mean integers, well if you have two integers of the same sign that you are adding, add and the sign stays the same. If you have different signs, subtract and keep the sign of the one that has more. Regular numbers you just add them.
to subtract an integer, add its opposite or additive inverse.
NO, 8 and 4 cannot be opposite integers.Integers can be opposite by the difference in sign conversion of the same number. 8 and -8 are opposite.
Two integerss add to zero when their absolute values are equal and they have opposite signs.
