## Adding Integers with Like Signs
Integers are the set of signed numbers.
Signed numbers include positive numbers (example the
number 9), negative numbers (example -9), and 0.
The integers are
...-8,-7,-6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6...
Adding integers with like signs is not difficult, once you know
the procedure. 1. Look at the two integers
that you are adding and identify the common sign.
2. Use the common sign in the answer. 3.
Add the
absolute values of the number.
example: (-6) + (-3) = -9
example: 8 + 6 = +14 or
