**Adding Integers**

Integers with the Same Sign

Adding integers that have the same sign is pretty straightforward. Add the two numbers together

and maintain the sign.

Example: 200+500=700

Both numbers are positive so we add the numbers together and number remains positive.

Both numbers are positive so we add the numbers together and number remains positive.

Example: -- 300 + (-- 900) = -- 1,200

Both addends are negative, so we add them together and maintain the negative sign.

Integers with Different Signs

When adding integers with different signs, ignore the signs at first and subtract the smaller number

from the larger. The final sum will maintain the sign of the larger addend.
