Addition of Integers on Number Line

Addition on the Number line Subtraction on the Number line Multiplication on the Number line Integers on Number Line Addition of Integers on Number Line
Subtraction of Integers on Number Line Compare Natural Numbers on Number Line Compare Integers on Number Line

Addition of Integers on Numbers Line can be of the following types:

Type 1 - When Both the Integers are Negative Integers



Example = Add -4 and -3

Let's draw Number Line :



Since we have (-4), so on the number line, first move 4 units to the left of Zero and reach at (-4).

Now other integer is (-3), so move 3 more units to the left of (-4) and we will reach at (-7).

And we know (-4) + (-3) = (-7)

Type 2 - When one integer is positive and other is negative



Under this type, we will solve two examples:

Example 1 =[ 7 + (-3) ]

Let's draw Number Line :



Since we have (+7), so on the number line, first move 7 units to the right of Zero and reach at (7).

Now other integer is (-3), so move 3 more units to the left of (7) and we will reach at (5).

And we know that, [ 7 + (-3) ] = 4



Example 2 = (-7) + 3

Let's draw Number Line :



Since we have (-7), so on the number line, first move 7 units to the left of Zero and reach at (-7).

Now other integer is (+3), so move 3 more units to the right of (-7) and we will reach at (-4).

And we know that, (-7) + 3 = (-4)
