Ignore the signs and subtract the smaller number from the larger one.

signs are different.... Find the difference.... KEEP THE LARGER SIGN signs are the same... COMBINE AND 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

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.

The value of the quotient of two integers with different signs is the same as if the signs were the same. Because the numbers have different signs, the quotient is negative.

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

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.

When their signs are the same.

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!

The answer also has the same sign.

addition and subtract in integers

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