Adding integersWhen adding integers, use a number line to help you think through problems.It will be really helpful For example: 2 + 6 Start at 2 and move 6 units to the right. Since you stopped at 8, the answer is 8 Notice that you would get the same answer if you start at 6 and move 2 units to the right. Find 2 + 8: Start at 2 and move 8 units to the right. Since you end up at 6, the answer is 6. Find 4 + 7 Start at 4. Here the number you are adding to 4 is a negative number(7), so you have to move 7 units to the left. After you do that, you will end up at 3, so the answer is 3 Find 2 + 6 Start at 2 Once again, the number you are adding is a negative number(6), so you will move 6 units to the left. You will end up at 8, so the answer is 8 Other examples: 1 + 8 = 7 ( Start at 1 and move 8 units to the right). 4 + 4 = 0 ( Start at 4 and move 4 units to the left). 7 + 9 = 2 ( Start at 7 and move 9 units to the left). 5 + 3 = 2 ( Start at 5 and move 3 units to the right) Other related topics related to integers are modeling integers with chips , integers and inductive reasoning ,and consecutive integers
