1 1.2 Integers Absolute Value : The absolute value of a real number is its distance from 0 on the number line. The numbers 2 and -2 are both 2 units away from 0. That is, 2 2 = and 2 2 = - . The absolute value of a real number is never negative! Examples: = 5 = - 5 = 2 . 1 = - 5 . 2 = 0 Operations with integers: Adding Integers: o Same signs – add and keep the sign o Different signs – subtract their absolute values and take the sign of the number with the larger absolute value Subtracting Integers: o Change the problem to addition using these rules: b a b a b a b a b a b a b a b a + - = - - - - + - = - - + = - - - + = - ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( o Use the rules for adding integers (above) Examples: Perform the following operations: 1. 8 + (-3) 2. 6 + (-6) 3. -4 + (-6) 4. 14 – 75
