Understanding GED Algebra Integers | Basic Algebra Review

Math Flashcards   |   GED Math   |      Free GED Assessment   |  

To pass the GED math test, it is important that you know the basics of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers.  Basic algebra review watching GED math videos, reviewing for the GED algebra test, and practicing problems for the GED math test will help prepare you.

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...

Numbers decrease in value as you go from right to left.

0 is considered the "origin" and is neither negative or positive.

The absolute value "|  |"  is the distance from a number on a number line to 0.  Two numbers that are an equal distance from 0 are called "opposite" numbers.  An example is -3 and 3.  To find the absolute value of a number, look at the number.  If the number is positive or 0, the absolute value is that number.  If the number is negative, make the number positive to find the absolute value.

Example:  The absolute value of 6 is 6.  The absolute value of -14 is 14.

| 6 | = 6         | 0 | = 0         | -2 | =2         | -14 | =14

The symbol "-" can be used to indicate subtraction, a negative number, or "the opposite of".
