## INTEGER ADD RULES

Sing to the tune of "Row Your Boat"

Same signs add in line,

Different signs subtract,

Keep the sign of the LONGER number.

Now, you'll be exact!## Integers: SUBTRACT,

means add opposite

So to solve change subtract to addition

and change the integer sign that follows

Example 1: - - becomes + +

-7 - 7 becomes + 7 + 7

Example 2: - + becomes + -

-8 + 8 becomes + 8 - 8

Note: Do not change addition,

just follow the add rules
