Adding two numbers with different signs means subtracting the two absolute integers (without sign) and vice versa.

Add the numerals and keep the sign. Examples: +9 + +3 = +12 -5 + -6 = -11 Just in case this is your next question: to add integers with different signs, subtract the numerals, and use the sign of the larger number.

Just multiply without the sign. Then add a minus sign to the result.

To add two integers with unlike signs: -- Find the difference between their sizes, ignoring their signs. -- Give the difference the sign of the integer with the larger size.

The examples show that, to find the of two integers with unlike signs first find the absolute value of each integers.

if the signs are the same you must add its opposite.

To add integers with like signs you jut put the positive in front of the answer (you just add and put a positive sign in front of it)

You subtract the smaller from the larger and give the answer the sign of the number with the larger absolute value.

If the integers have the same sign, add the numbers (ignoring the signs*) together and then keep the sign. Examples: 4 + 5 = 9 -3 + -8 = -(3 + 8) = -11 If the integers have different signs, ignoring the signs* subtract the smaller from the larger and keep the sign of the larger. Examples: -3 + 10 → 10 - 3 = 7 5 + -11 → -(11 - 5) = -6 *Ignoring he signs of the numbers is taking the absolute value of the numbers.

To add two integers with opposite signs . . . -- Ignore the signs, and write the difference between the two numbers. -- Give it the same sign as the larger original number has.

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.

I feel that two negatives are positive because you add* your two negative integers* together, you would be doing this: -+- (negative + negative) so the response is, is that if two integers where both negative, you would add, just like if there were two positives, you would add, but not if you have different signs. (positive+negative) you would subtract. Just as the same with negative + positive. [REVIEW: if the sign is the same, add, if the sign is different, you subtract.] *=you may not always add *=integers- a fancy word for numbers.
