(b) 5 + (–11) = 5 – 11 = -6

(c) (–1) + (–7) = -1 – 7 = -8

(d) (–5) + 10 = -5 + 10 = 5

(e) (–1) + (–2) + (–3) = -1 – 2 – 3 = -6

(f) (–2) + 8 + (–4) = -2 + 8 – 4 = -6 + 8 = 2

**Question 3**

Add without using number line:

Answer:

(a) 11 + (–7) = 11 – 7 = 4

(b) (–13) + 18 = -13 + 18 = 5

(c) (–10) + (+19) = –10 + 19 = 9

(d) (–250) + (+150) = –250 + 150 = –100

(e) (–380) + (–270) = –380 – 270 = –650

(f) (–217) + (–100) = –217 - 100 = –317

**Question 4.**

Find the sum of:

(a) 137 and –354 (b) –52 and 52 (c) –213, 39 and 192 (d) –50, –200 and 300

Answer:

(a) 137 + (–354) = 137 – 354 = –217

(b) (–52) + 52 = -52 + 52 = 0

(c) (–312) + 39 + 192 = –312 + 39 + 192 = –312 + 231 = –81

(d) (–50) + (–200) + 300 = –50 – 200 + 300 = –250 + 300 = 50

**Question 5.**

(b) 37 + (–2) + (–65) + (–8)

Answer:

(a) (–7) + (–9) + 4 + 16

= –7 – 9 + 4 + 16

= –16 + 20 = 4

(b) 37 + (–2) + (–65) + (–8)

= 37 – 2 – 65 – 8

= 37 – 75 = –38

**Exercise 6.3**

**Question 1:**

Subtract:

(a) 35 – (20) (b) 72 – (90) (c) (–15) – (–18) (d) (–20) – (13) (e) 23 – (–12) (f) (–32) – (–40)

Answer:

(a) 35 – (20) = 35 – 20 = 15

(b) 72 – (90) = 72 – 90 = -18

(c) (–15) – (–18) = -15 + 18 = 3

(d) (–20) – (13) = -20 - 13 = -33

(e) 23 – (-12) = 23 + 12 = 35

(f) (–32) – (–40) = -32 + 40 = 8

**Question 2.**

Fill in the blanks with >, < or = sign:

(a) (–3) + (–6) _______________ (–3) – (–6)

(b)(–21) – (–10) _______________ (–31) + (–11)

(c) 45 – (–11) _______________ 57 + (–4)

(d)(–25) – (–42) _______________ (–42) – (–25)

Answer:

(a) (–3) + (–6) = -3 – 6 = -9

and (–3) – (–6) = -3 + 6 = 3

So, (–3) + (–6) < (–3) – (–6)

(b) (–21) – (–10) = -21 + 10 = -11

and (–31) + (–11) = -31 – 11 = -41

So, (–21) – (–10) > (–31) + (–11)

(c) 45 – (–11)= 45 + 11 = 56

and 57 + (–4) = 57 – 4 = 53

So, 45 – (–11) > 57 + (–4)

(d) (–25) – (–42)= -25 + 42 = 17

and (–42) – (–25) = -42 + 25 = -17

So, (–25) – (–42) > (–42) – (–25)

**Question 3.**

Fill in the blanks:

(a) (–8) + __________ = 0

(b) 13 + __________ = 0

(c) 12 + (–12) = __________

(d)(–4) + __________ = –12

(e) __________ – 15 = –10

Answer:

(a) (–8) + 8 = 0

(b) 13 + (-13) = 0

(c) 12 + (–12) =0

(d)(–4) + (-8) = –12

(e) 5 – 15 = –10

**Question 4.**

Find:

(a) (–7) – 8 – (–25)

(b)(–13) + 32 – 8 – 1

(c) (–7) + (–8) + (–90)

(d) 50 – (–40) – (–2)

Answer:

(a) (–7) – 8 – (–25) = -7 – 8 + 25 = -15 + 25 = 10

(b)(–13) + 32 – 8 – 1 = -13 + 32 – 8 - 1 = -22 + 32 = 10

(c) (–7) + (–8) + (–90) = -7 – 8 – 90 = -105

(d) 50 – (–40) – (–2) = 50 + 40 + 2 = 92
