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.

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.

Same rules as adding whole numbers with different signs.

If the signs (positive/negative) are the same, the answer is going to be positive. If the signs are different, the answer going to be negative.

Yes.

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.

They aren't. The rules are the same as those for adding/subtracting or multiplying integers. Just be careful of the decimal point's location.

The rules are the same.

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.

When multiplying integers, multiplying by the same sign will always produce a positive integer. Such as a negative times a negative equals a positive. If the signs are different then the product will be a negative.
