Question 1.

Add:

- 8 + 6
- 9 + (-3)
- 5 + (-6)
- – 7 + 2
- – 8 + 0
- – 5 + (-2)

Solution:

1. 8 + 6 = (+8) + (+6) = +14 | 2. 9 + (-3) = (+9) + (- 3) = +6 | 3. 5 + (-6) = (+5) + (-6) = -1 |

4. -7 + 2 = (-7) + (+2) = -5 | 5. -8 + 0 = (-8) + 0 = -8 | 6. -5 + (-2) = (-5) + (-2) = -7 |

Question 2.

Complete the table given below:

+ | 8 | 4 | -3 | -5 |

-2 | -2 + 8 = +6 | |||

6 | ||||

0 | ||||

-4 |

Solution:

+ | 8 | 4 | -3 | -5 |

-2 | (-2) + (+8) = +6 | (-2) +(+4) = 2 | (-2) +(-3) =-5 | (-2) +(-5) =-7 |

6 | (+6) + (+8) = 14 | (+6) + (+4) = 10 | (+6) + (-3) = 3 | (+6) + (-5) = 1 |

0 | 0 + (+8) = 8 | 0 + (+4) = 4 | 0 + (-3) = -3 | 0 + (-5) = -5 |

-4 | (-4) + (+8) = 4 | (-4) +(+4) = 0 | (-4) + (-3) = -7 | (-4) + (-5) = -9 |
