To reach – 1 from – 6, on the number line, we have to move towards the right of – 6.

Addition of integers:

Like whole numbers, the integers can also be added. We obey the following rules

Rule I: Adding integers with like signs:

Examples:

(i) (+ 2) + (+ 10) (+ 12)

(ii) (- 3) + (- 7) = (- 10)

Rule II: Adding integers of unlike signs:

(i) (+ 13) + (- 8) = (+ 5)

(ii) (+ 5) + (- 18) = (- 13)
