Given numbers -73, 27, -103 and -123

We need to find the sum of those given numbers

Solution

(-73)+ (27) + (-103) + (-123)

Combining like terms

Three numbers carry a negative symbol hence we can sum it up first

(-73) + (-103) + (-123) + (27)

(-299) + (27) { negative sign as the bigger number hasnegative sign}

– 272 {we need to subtract as the bigger number is neagtive}

Hence (-73)+ (27) + (-103) + (-123)= -272
