When you add:

a negative and a negative: you get a negative

a positive and a positive: you get a positive

a positive and a negative or a negative and a positive: Subtract the addend with the smaller value from the greater one. If the greater one is positive, your answer will be positive. If the greater addend is negative, your answer will be negative.

What are the rules in adding subtracting multiplying and dividing integers?

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.


What is the rule in adding positive integers?

Adding IntegersTo add integers, one must consider the following two rules to be a successful.If you want to think of it on the number line you start from 0 and when you add a positive number you go that much to the right, and when you add a negative number you go that much to the left. When adding two positive integers, just add like normal. When adding one positive integer, and one negative integer, it is like subtracting a positive number from a positive number. When adding two negative integers, it is like subtracting a positive number from a negative number.


How is adding to negative integers the same as and different from subtracting two positive integers?

No- adding negative numbers is like adding positive numbesr , except the answer is negative.


How is adding integers similar to adding whole numbers?

Integers include 0, the negative numbers without fractional parts, and the positive numbers without fractional parts. The "without fractional parts" part of the description implies that all of the integers are whole numbers. Therefore, if you are adding integers, you are adding whole numbers.


What is the adding integers and rational number rules?

The set of integers is closed under addition so that if x and y are integers, then x + y is an integer.Addition of integers is commutative, that is x + y = y + xAddition of integers is associative, that is (x + y) + z = x + (y + z) and so, without ambiguity, either can be written as x + y + z.The same three rules apply to addition of rational numbers.

When adding 2 integers will the answer be positive?

When adding two integers, the answer will be positive if both integers are positive, or if one is negative but its absolute value is smaller than the absolute value of the positive integer.


What is adding and subtracting integers?

Integers are whole numbers, both positive and negative. Therefore, adding and subtracting integers would be adding and subtracting whole numbers. Examples: 8+2 -8+2 8-2 -8-2


How are the rules for adding integers applied to operations with rational numbers?

You need the rules of multiplication as well as of addition. But multiplication of integers can be viewed as repeated addition. Thus, if p/q and r/s are two rational numbers then their sum is(p*s + q*r)/(q*s)


How is adding positive and negative numbers similar to adding integers?

It is the same thing, since "integers" consists of positive and negative numbers (and zero).


Rules for adding and subtracting integers?

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.


What are the rules of addition?

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.


How is adding polynomials like adding integers?

The numbers can have a positive or negative sign.


Is adding integers and subtracting integers are the same?

Let x and y be two integers. x - y = x + (-y)



If you add integers that are negative then your answer will be positive?

No. Adding negative integers will result in an integer that is more negative.
