How do you determine a difference when subtracting two integers that have the same signs?

(-10) - (-5) = (-5) when subtracting a negative number from another negative number if the first number is larger that the second number then you just subtract the to numbers. don't worry about the signs just subtract the numbers when your done put the sign of the first number on again.

When subtracting and adding integers how do you decide what the sign of the answer will be?

The answer will have the same sign as the number with the larger magnitude.

Does the word delta mean the same thing as difference when subtracting two numbers?

"Delta" is often used to mean "the difference" between two numbers, and that is the same as subtracting. When you subtract, the answer is called the "difference."

Adding integers, if they have the same sign, add their absolute values and keep the same sign. Subtracting, change the sign of the 2nd number and the add using rules of addition. Multiplying and dividing, Divide the absolute values, if the signs are the same the answer is positive, if the signs are different the answer is negative.

Can you reverse the order of integers when subtracting and still get the same answer why?

No because the commutative property only works for addition and multiplication

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.

How do you determine the sign of a quotient two integers?

-- If the two integers have the same sign, their quotient is positive. -- If the two integers have different signs, their quotient is negative.

How do you find the sum of two integers with different signs?

-- write the difference between the integers without regard to their signs -- give the difference the same sign as the larger of the two integers

What can you say about the of two integers with the same signs?

-- Their sum and difference both have the same sign that the two integers have. -- Their product and quotient are both positive.

How do you add integers with different signs?

1. Take the absolute values of those two integers.2. Find the difference.3. Determine which integer is the largest. If that integer is positive, then the answer is positive. If that integer is negative, then the answer is negative.

What is the difference between subtracting a negative integer and adding a positive integer?

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

How do you do integers greatest to least?

Positive integers are greater than negative integers. For positive integers: * The integer with more digits is larger. * If two integers have the same length, compare the first digit. If the first digit is the same, compare the second digit, then the third, etc., until you find a difference. In each case, the integer with the larger digit (at the first position where you find a difference) is the larger one.
