Adding Integers Rhyme

This is a little jingle that might help you remember the rules for adding integers.

Remember from class:

  • Same signs
    • Add the numbers
    • Keep the sign
  • Different signs
    • Subtract the numbers (larger-smaller)
    • Keep the sign of larger number


Same sign add and keep,
Different signs subtract.
Take the sign of the larger number,
Your answer will be exact.
