1. Write down a pair of integers whose:

(a) sum is -7

Solution:-

= -4 + (-3)

= -4 – 3 … [∵ (+ × – = -)]

= -7

(b) difference is -10

Solution:-

= -25 – (-15)

= – 25 + 15 … [∵ (- × – = +)]

= -10

(c) sum is 0

Solution:-

= 4 + (-4)

= 4 – 4

= 0

2. (a) Write a pair of negative integers whose difference gives 8.

Solution:-

= (-5) – (-13)

= -5 + 13 … [∵ (- × – = +)]

= 8

(b) Write a negative integer and a positive integer whose sum is -5.

Solution:-

= -25 + 20

= -5

(c) Write a negative integer and a positive integer whose difference is -3.

Solution:-

= -2 – (1)

= -2 – 1

= -3

3. In a quiz, team A scored -40, 10, 0, and team B scored 10, 0, -40 in three successive rounds. Which team scored more? Can we say that we can add integers in any order?

Solution:-

From the question, it is given that

The score of team A = -40, 10, 0

Total score obtained by team A = -40 + 10 + 0

= -30

The score of team B = 10, 0, -40

Total score obtained by team B = 10 + 0 + (-40)

= 10 + 0 – 40

= -30

Thus, the score of both team A and team B is the same.

Yes, we can say that we can add integers in any order.

4. Fill in the blanks to make the following statements true:

(i) (-5) + (-8) = (-8) + (…………)

Solution:-

Let us assume the missing integer be x,

Then,

= (-5) + (-8) = (-8) + (x)

= -5 – 8 = – 8 + x

= -13 = -8 + x

By sending -8 from RHS to LHS, it becomes 8,

= -13 + 8 = x

= x = -5

Now, substitute the x value in the blank place,

(-5) + (-8) = (-8) + (-5) … [This equation is in the form of the Commutative law of Addition].

(ii) -53 + ………… = -53

Solution:-

Let us assume the missing integer be x,

Then,

= -53 + x = -53

By sending -53 from LHS to RHS, it becomes 53,

= x = -53 + 53

= x = 0

Now, substitute the x value in the blank place,

= -53 + 0 = -53 … [This equation is in the form of the closure property of addition]

(iii) 17 + ………… = 0

Solution:-

Let us assume the missing integer be x,

Then,

= 17 + x = 0

By sending 17 from LHS to RHS, it becomes -17,

= x = 0 – 17

= x = -17

Now, substitute the x value in the blank place,

= 17 + (-17) = 0 … [This equation is in the form of closure property of addition]

= 17 – 17 = 0

(iv) [13 + (– 12)] + (…………) = 13 + [(–12) + (–7)]

Solution:-

Let us assume the missing integer be x,

Then,

= [13 + (–12)] + (x) = 13 + [(–12) + (–7)]

= [13 – 12] + (x) = 13 + [–12 –7]

=  + (x) = 13 + [-19]

= 1 + (x) = 13 – 19

= 1 + (x) = -6

By sending 1 from LHS to RHS, it becomes -1

= x = -6 – 1

= x = -7

Now, substitute the x value in the blank place,

= [13 + (-12)] + (-7) = 13 + [(–12) + (-7)] … [This equation is in the form of associative property of addition].

(v) (–4) + [15 + (–3)] = [–4 + 15] +…………

Solution:-

Let us assume the missing integer be x,

Then,

= (-4) + [15 + (-3)] = [-4 + 15] + x

= (-4) + [15 – 3)] = [-4 + 15] + x

= (-4) +  =  + x

= 8 = 11 + x

By sending 11 from RHS to LHS, it becomes -11

= 8 – 11 = x

= x = -3

Now, substitute the x value in the blank place,

= (-4) + [15 + (-3)] = [-4 + 15] + -3 … [This equation is in the form of Associative property of Addition].
