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

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.

1. change the subtract to an add and switch the sign of the second. 2. follow rules for addition. -same sign is adding and keep the sign -different sign is subtract and take the sign of the bigger number

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.

The answer has the sign of the number which has the greater absolute value.

The numbers can have a positive or negative sign.

Addition is shown with a plus sign (+), subtraction is denoted by a minus sign (-).

they are both the same because you get the same answers you just drop the \$ sign. Ex. \$3.56+\$1.50=\$5.06 and 3.56=1.50=5.06

-- Ignore the signs for a moment. -- Find the difference of the two integers. -- Give it the sign of whichever integer is the bigger number.

For each pair of such integers, find the difference between the absolute values of the two integers and allocate the sign of the bigger number to it.

The sum or difference will take the sign of whichever number is larger (disregarding the signs). -6 + 8 = 2 6 + -8 = -2 8 - (-6) = 14 -8 - 6 = -14

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.

The value of the answer is the sum of the absolute values of the numbers and the sign of the answer is the same as that of the two numbers.

it depends to the value of the number,when the greater value caries the positive sign,your answer must be positive,when it carries the negative sign,your answer is negative.

The plus sign does adding and the minus sign does subtraction in Excel: =A10+B2 =A2-50 The * is used for multiplication. The / is used for division: =A2*A3 =A6/40

The sign of the answer will always be a positive number because subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive (
