## FAQs on Addition and Subtraction of Integers - 3 Video Lecture - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. What are integers?
Ans. Integers are whole numbers, both positive and negative, including zero. They do not have any fractional or decimal parts.
 2. How do you perform addition of integers?
Ans. To add integers, you need to consider their signs. If the signs are the same, you add the absolute values and keep the common sign. If the signs are different, you subtract the smaller absolute value from the larger one and keep the sign of the integer with the larger absolute value.
 3. How do you perform subtraction of integers?
Ans. Subtraction of integers can be done by adding the opposite. To subtract an integer, you change the sign of the integer to be subtracted and then perform addition using the changed sign.
 4. Can you provide an example of adding integers?
Ans. Sure! Let's consider adding -5 and 3. Since the signs are different, we subtract the smaller absolute value from the larger one. In this case, 5 - 3 = 2. As the sign of -5 is negative, the sum will be -2.
 5. Can you give an example of subtracting integers?
Ans. Certainly! Let's subtract -8 from -3. We change the sign of -8 to positive, which becomes +8. Now we can add -3 and +8, which gives us 5 as the result.
