Bj's Great Big Book Of Integers Chapter 1

Chapter 1 : Great Book Of Integers Review

In integers, when adding both positive and negative with the same number they will cancel each other out making the answer a zero.

In Integers you can have zero pairs.

Zero pairs is when you have positive and negative number that is the same.
ex. (+9) + (9-) = 0

I prefer using standard form because its easier to answer and easy to understand.
ex. +9 + -1 = -10

Sign Rule:
If there is even number of positive the product will be POSITIVE
If there is a odd number the product will be NEGATIVE.

  1. Awesome post, BJ. Great pictures. You just got add the next 3 chapters. I'm pretty sure the sign rule is only ment for multiplying and dividing.
