Solutions to Practice Exercises on Addition of Integers

We have learned how to add integers and in the previous post, I have given you practice exercises that you can use to evaluate your understanding of the topic. Below is the complete solutions to the practice exercises on adding integers. Share to me how many did you get right.

Solutions to Practice Exercises on Addition of Integers

1. 28 + 12 = 40.

2. 14 + 11 = 25

3. 24 + 15 = 9

Solution: We pair 15 and 15  to get 0. We have 9  left. So, the correct answer is 9.

4. –16 + 31 = 15

We pair 16  and 16 to get 0. We are left with positive 15.
5. 23 + 46 + 15 = 54

We add the two positive numbers first: 23 + 46 = 69. Next, we add 69 and 15. We get 15 from 69 and pair it with 15 resulting to 0, so we have 54 left.

6. 45 + 12 + 16 = 17

We add the negative numbers first: 12 + 16 = 28. We add the result to 45. We get 28 from 45 and pair it with  28 to get 0 leaving 17.

7. 12 +15 + 62 =  89

Explanation: They are negative, so we just added them. Of course negative added to negative is always negative.

8. 22 +  36 + 36 = 22

Explanation: 36 + 36 = 0, so we are left with 22.

9. 12 + 18 + 12 + 18 = 0

Explanation: 12 and 12 and 18 and 18 = 0.

10. 31 + 55 + 41 +  32 + 10 = 3

Explanation: Adding the positive integers, we have 31 + 55  = 86. Adding the negative integers, we have  41 +  32 + 10 =83. Now, 86 + 83 = 3

Practice Exercises on Addition of Integers

In the previous post, we have learned about adding positive and negative integers particularly on how to add integers with different signs. In this post, I am going to give you 10 exercises on adding integers. I will give the answers below for you to be able to check if your answers are correct. Also, I am going to omit the + sign before the positive integers because this is not usually shown in the exam. This means that 3 will automatically mean +3 unless a – sign precedes it.
