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

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".

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

Subtracting an integer is the same as adding the additive inverse. In symbols: a - b = a + (-b), where "-b" is the additive inverse (the opposite) of b.

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

for integers with tow different signs, it will always be negative in multiplying and division. for adding and subtracting, the sign is for the bigger number.

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.

Subtracting a fraction is the same as adding its negative.
