Adding and Subtracting Real Numbers
The set of all numbers that can be represented
on a number line are called real numbers. You
can use a number line to model addition and
subtraction of real numbers.
To model addition of a positive number, move
right. To model addition of a negative number,
move left.
Subtraction
To model subtraction of a positive number, move
left. To model subtraction of a negative number,
move right.

Adding and Subtracting Real Numbers
A.
Different signs: subtract the
absolute values.
Use the sign of the number with
the greater absolute value.
B. –6 + (–2)
(6 + 2 = 8)
–8
Same signs: add the absolute values.
Both numbers are negative, so the
sum is negative.

Both numbers are negative, so
the sum is negative.
b. –13.5 + (–22.3)
Same signs: add the absolute

Adding and Subtracting Real Numbers
Two numbers are opposites if their sum
is 0. A number and its opposite are
additive inverses and are the same
distance from zero. They have the same
absolute value.

Adding and Subtracting Real Numbers
To subtract signed numbers, you can use additive
inverses. Subtracting a number is the same as
adding the opposite of the number.

Additional Example 3A: Subtracting Real Numbers
Subtract.
–6.7 – 4.1
–6.7 – 4.1 = –6.7 + (–4.1) To subtract 4.1, add –4.1.
(6.7 + 4.1 = 10.8)
–10.8
Same signs: add absolute
values.
Both numbers are negative, so
the sum is negative.
