"Same Sign - Find the Sum"

Add the numbers and keep the same sign.

Add the numbers and keep the same sign.

Example: -6 + (-2) = -8

Adding Integers with DIFFERENT SIGNS (positive + negative or negative + positive)

"Different Signs - Find the Difference"

Subtract the numbers and keep the sign of the number with the MOST chips (black = positive, red = negative)

Example 1: -8 + 2 = -6

Example 2: -4 + 7 = 3

Subtract the numbers and keep the sign of the number with the MOST chips (black = positive, red = negative)

Example 1: -8 + 2 = -6

Example 2: -4 + 7 = 3

Multiplying and Dividing TWO Integers with the SAME SIGNS

The answer is always POSITIVE.

Example 1: -5 * -4 = 20

Example 2: -36/-6 = 6

Example 1: -5 * -4 = 20

Example 2: -36/-6 = 6

Multiplying and Dividing TWO Integers with DIFFERENT SIGNS

The answer is always NEGATIVE.

Example 1: -3*4 = -12

Example 2: 30/-5 = -6

Example 1: -3*4 = -12

Example 2: 30/-5 = -6
