Add the magnitudes of the integers (-4 has a magnitude of 4), then take the sign to the answer.

copy the sign then add :)

Add the magnitudes, keep the sign.

You simply add the numbers: the answer has a positive sign.

Add their magnitudes, and keep the same sign for the sum.

Because that is how the opposite of a number is defined.

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.

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.

yes.

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

Two integerss add to zero when their absolute values are equal and they have opposite signs.

That sounds sound.

Just multiply without the sign. Then add a minus sign to the result.

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

To add integers with like signs you jut put the positive in front of the answer (you just add and put a positive sign in front of it)

Regular .. Example=-6+-5=-11

NO, 8 and 4 cannot be opposite integers.Integers can be opposite by the difference in sign conversion of the same number. 8 and -8 are opposite.

If the larger of the two integers is negative, then their sum is negative, regardless of the sign of the smaller one.

-- If they both start out with the same sign (both negative or both positive), then do this: . . . . . add their two values . . . . . the answer has the same sign as the two original integers. -- If they start out with opposite signs (one negative and one positive), then do this: . . . . . forget about the signs . . . . . find their difference (subtract the smaller number from the larger one) . . . . . give it the sign of whichever original integer was the larger number.

if they are both negative, add like they are positive numbers, but just add the negative sign.

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.

Integers are the "counting numbers" and their negative counterparts, and zero. Opposite integers are the pairs of integers that have the same absolute value, or, in other words, are the same distance from zero. 10 and -10 are opposite integers. 43 and -43 are opposite integers. It's just that simple.

Add the number together and give the answer the same sign as the numbers.

There are no such integers.

I feel that two negatives are positive because you add* your two negative integers* together, you would be doing this: -+- (negative + negative) so the response is, is that if two integers where both negative, you would add, just like if there were two positives, you would add, but not if you have different signs. (positive+negative) you would subtract. Just as the same with negative + positive. [REVIEW: if the sign is the same, add, if the sign is different, you subtract.] *=you may not always add *=integers- a fancy word for numbers.
