Ignore the signs and subtract the smaller number from the larger one.

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.

The answer is always positive (or 0).

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 both have the same sign the answer is positive, if they have different signs the answer is negative.

no.

signs are different.... Find the difference.... KEEP THE LARGER SIGN signs are the same... COMBINE AND KEEP THE SIGN

no

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

(-4)-(-9)=5

divide them or multiply then put a negative because to different signs make a negative to of the same signs make a positive

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.

None, because the set of integers and the set of whole numbers is the same.

When their signs are the same.

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

You subtract the smaller from the larger.

The answer also has the same sign.

Multiply two integers disregarding the signs. Then if the signs are the same, the answer is positive and if the signs are different, the answer is negative. Alternatively, if you are multiplying together a whole bunch of numbers, first find the product while ignoring the signs. Then count all the negative numbers. If the count is even, the answer is positive and if it is odd, the answer is negative.

It is positive.

-- write the difference between the integers without regard to their signs -- give the difference the same sign as the larger of the two integers

(-10) - (-5) = (-5) when subtracting a negative number from another negative number if the first number is larger that the second number then you just subtract the to numbers. don't worry about the signs just subtract the numbers when your done put the sign of the first number on again.

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 sum is positive.

-- Their sum and difference both have the same sign that the two integers have. -- Their product and quotient are both positive.
