101 and 26
To get the product, multiply the first number by the second. To get the sum, add the second number to the first. To get the difference, subtract the smaller number from the larger.
-- Ignore the signs. -- Find the difference between the two numbers. -- Give it the sign of the larger original number.
The difference between 13 and 16 is 3. To find the difference between two numbers subtract the larger number by the smaller number. (16-13=3)
The larger number is 12.
To add a negative number and a positive number: -- Find the difference of their absolute values (their sizes, ignoring their signs). -- Give it the same sign as whichever of the original two numbers had the larger absolute value.
The two numbers are 9 and 23. 23-9 = 14 23-(2*9) = 5
The numbers are 7 and 6
The difference is an even number.
37 and 40
Subtract the difference and half your answer, giving 9 which is the smaller number, add the difference to this and you get 38 which is the larger number.
subtract the smaller number from the larger number then divide the answer by 2
