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)

With both positive it's positive, with both negative it's negative.

A negative number divided by a postive number equals negative number . Remember the rules of division of integers : Unlike signs = Negative Like signs = Positive .

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.

Like signs give a positive answer. Unlike signs give a negative answer.

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.

No.For the sum of integers:-- two positives make a positive-- two negatives make a negative-- the sum of mixed signs is the sign of the one with the greater absolute valueFor the product of integers:-- like signs make a positive-- unlike signs make a negative

Subtracting: Positive - Negative = Positive Negative - Positive = Negative No that is not the way it goes. It is positive+negetive=either counting on which integer is bigger negative+negative=positive positive+positive=positive positive x negetive=negative negative x postitve= negative negative/positive=negative positive/negative=negetive thanks The top is right though because subtracting a negative is like adding so you could never get a negative and subtracting from a positive from negative will always be a negative. The question was for integers with different signs so you don't need to do "positive + positive"

I am not at all sure that there are any rules that apply to integers in isolation. Any rules that exist are in the context of binary operations like addition or multiplication of integers.

Procedure: 1. Divide the integers like you always do. 2. Follow these rules: (Note:+ is a positive integer, - is a negative integer and * is the multiplication symbol) a.+*+=+ b.+*-=- c.-*+=- d.-*-=+ Follow these rules and you will have your answer in no time.

additionslike sign -just add and copy the sign of the integersunlike signsubtract the integers then copy the sign of the bigger integers.subtractionchange the sign of the subtrahend and proceed as in adding integers.multiplication and Divisionwith like signsthe product or quotient is positiveunlike signthe product or quotient is negativeby:jen Marie :)

The fractions are re-scaled so that the denominators are the same and then the numerators are subtracted as required by the signs.

positive + positive = positive negitive + negitive = positive negitive + positive = negitive

numbers with Like signs : result Plusnumbers with Unlike signs : result Minus

Not really, because its just flipped over like 2-3 that because keep change change so 2+(-3)= -1

adding1. like sign, add their absalute value & copy the common sign.2. unlike signs. subtruct their absalute value & copy the sing of the bigger number.subtructing1. change the sign of the subrahend (if + change to - & if - change to +)2. then go back to the rules in addition.multiplying & dividing1. likes signs, simply perform the operation then the answer's sign would be (+) positive2. unlike signs, simply perform the operation then the answer's sign would be (-) negative

Adding and subtracting polynomials is simply the adding and subtracting of their like terms.

positive integers are like 2,3,4,etc... negative integers are like -2,-4,-9etc....

Like signs: + and + , - and - Unlike signs: + and - , - and +

because you subtract the 2 numerators and then 2 denominators right across just like that :)
