What is the definition of Adding and Subtracting Like Fractions

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.

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

1+1 = 2 2-1 = 1

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.

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