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.

1. change the subtract to an add and switch the sign of the second. 2. follow rules for addition. -same sign is adding and keep the sign -different sign is subtract and take the sign of the bigger number

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

first we used the rule KCC keep the first number ,change the sign and second number.Rules for addition of singed number :Same signs Add and keep the sign;different signs Subtract and keep the sign of the biggest number

It is important to add and subtract integers: to get a new integer value in mathematics .

Because otherwise you would only know how to subtract and add with the same integers. Not a particularly useful skill unless just those integers turned up!

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.

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.

you can add subtract multiply and divide them.

If the number has a + sign then you add it, if it has a - sign, then you subtract it.

First, subtract the absolute values of the integers, then use the greater absolute value's sign.

If the integers have the same sign (poitive or negative) you should add them together. If they have a different sign you subtract the numbers and the answer will take the sign of the number with the greatest absolute value (the number farthest from zero on a numberline) in the problem.

Add the magnitudes of the integers (-4 has a magnitude of 4), then take the sign to the answer.

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

copy the sign then add :)

Add the magnitudes, keep the sign.

if the signs are different then u put the larger sing down then u subtract if if the signs are the same then u put the same sign down then u add

add, subtract, multiply, divide

fist then the kick then the uppercut

Subtract and add the sign of the greater number.

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.

If the signs are the same, add the absolute values and keep the sign. If the signs are different, subtract the lesser absolute value from the greater absolute value and keep the sign of the number with the greater absolute value.

+2 + -1= 1

Integers

You simply add the numbers: the answer has a positive sign.
