# GED Math:  Adding Integers with Unlike Signs

## Adding Integers with Unlike 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.

2. Find the absolute value of each integer.

3.  Use the sign of the integer with the largest absolute value in your answer.

4.  Subtract the absolute values of the integers.

example:  (-6) + 3= -3

example:  8 +(- 6) = +2 or 2
