• Mrs. Smith was teaching Johnny how to add integers.﻿
• integers ﻿
• Johnny had to answer the problem 5 + -7= ? And he seams to be determine to get  the problem correct.
• 5 + -7 = ?
• 5 + -7 = ?
• Well if the absolute value of -7 is 7 and the absolute value of 5 is 5 then you just subtract
• Johnny takes the absolute value of both numbers. then subtracts the smaller number from the bigger number.﻿
• 5 + -7 = ?
• Johnny knows the answer is 2 but he didn't forget about the -7 so since it is the bigger number you have to take the negative and add it to your number so it will become -2.﻿
• ﻿5 + -7 =  -2
• so don't forget ﻿once you get the absolute value of BOTH numbers take the sign of the larger number and your  answer will be correct.
