I would think that the commonality of adding and subtracting integers is that the answer itself will always be an integer. In other words, the answer is always gonna be a "whole number".

adding and subtracting integers is when you add and minus 2 numbers

there are no algorithms for subtracting algorithms!!!

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

adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing

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

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

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.

It's pretty much the exact same. Subtracting is the same as adding a negative number. Foe example, five minus three is the same as five plus negative three.

I learned to always change the denominators before adding or subtracting the numerators. You must always have a common denominator before adding or subtracting.

to subtrct integers ,rewrite as adding opposites and use the rules for addtion of integers..

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

Subtracting two positive fractional numbers, or adding one positive and one negative integer.

It can be a problem to do with adding or subtracting or exponents.

When adding negative integers, you subtract. (2+-1=1) When subtracting negative integers, you add. (2--3=5)

what are some examples of subtracting 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.

If their denominators are different then find their lowest common denominator by means of their lowest common multiple remembering to adjust their numerators accordingly before adding or subtracting.

When you can do addition and subtraction without recourse to it. Then it simply becomes a distraction.

It is the additive identity and so it leaves the number(s) unchanged.

A common denominator is needed when adding or subtracting fractions of different denominators.

Nope, just when adding or subtracting.
