Example text

In algebra, we add the opposite of 6, which is À6, to 8. In both cases, we get the same answer. To subtract one number from another, add the opposite of the number that is being subtracted. EXAMPLE Subtract (þ12) À ðÀ8Þ: SOLUTION Add þ8 (the opposite of À8) to 12 to get 20, as shown. ðþ12Þ À ðÀ8Þ ¼ ðþ12Þ þ ðþ8Þ (opposite of À 8Þ ¼ 20 Hence, (þ12) À ðÀ8Þ ¼ 20. EXAMPLE Subtract ðÀ6Þ À (þ3). SOLUTION ðÀ6Þ À ðþ3Þ ¼ ðÀ6Þ þ ðÀ3Þ (opposite of þ 3Þ ¼ À9 Hence, ðÀ6Þ À (þ3) ¼ À9: Math Note: Sometimes the answers in subtraction do not look correct, but once you get the opposite, you follow the rules of addition.

EXAMPLE Multiply ðÀ7Þ Â (þ6). SOLUTION Multiply 7  6 ¼ 42 and give the answer a À (negative) sign. Hence, ðÀ7Þ Â (þ6) ¼ À42. CHAPTER 2 Integers 28 EXAMPLE Multiply (þ9)  ðÀ5Þ: SOLUTION Multiply 9  5 ¼ 45 and give the answer a À (negative) sign. Hence, (þ9)  ðÀ5Þ ¼ À45. Math Note: Multiplication can be shown without a times sign. For example, ðÀ3ÞðÀ5Þ means ðÀ3Þ Â ðÀ5Þ. Also, a dot can be used to represent multiplication. For example, 5 Á 3 Á 2 means 5  3  2. To multiply three or more non-zero integers, multiply the absolute values and count the number of negative numbers.

5. Find the opposite of 0. 6. Find |0|. 7. Find the value of À(À10). 8. Find the value of À(þ25). 9. Find À(0) 10. ) ANSWERS 1. 16 2. À32 3. 23 4. 11 5. 0 6. 0 7. 10 8. À25 9. 0 10. ’’ CHAPTER 2 Integers 20 Given two integers, the number further to the right on the number line is the larger number. EXAMPLE Compare À5 with À2. SOLUTION Since À2 is further to the right on the number line, it is larger than À5 (see Fig. 2-2). Hence, À5 < À2. Fig. 2-2. EXAMPLE Use > or < to make a true statement. 0 __ À3 SOLUTION 0 > À3, since 0 is further to the right on the number line.
