#### Properties of Addition of Integers

##### Property- 1 (Closure Property):

The sum of two integers is also an integer, i.e., for any of two integers a and b, a + b is also an integer. Examples:

(i) 3 + 5 = 8 and 8 is an integer.

(ii) 5 + (–2) = 3 and 3 is an integer.

(iii) (–9) + (–3) = –12 and –12 is an integer.

##### Property- 2 (Commutative Property):

The sum of two integers remains unchanged if they interchange their places, i.e., for two integers a and b, a + b = b + a.

Examples:

(i) 4 + (–6) = –2 and (–6) + 4 = –2 \ 4 + (–6) = (–6) + 4 (ii) 38 + (–25) = 13 and (–25) + 38 = 13

So, 38 + (–25) = (–25) + 38.

##### Property- 3 (Associative Property):

The addition of integers is associative, i.e., for any three integers a, b and c, we have, (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

Example:

Consider the integers – 6, 3 and –17. We have, [(–6) + 3] –17 = –3 – 17 = –20 and (–6) + [3 + (–17)] = –6 – 14 = –20 \ [(–6) + 3] – 17 = (–6) + [3 + (–17)].

##### Property 4:

If a is any integer, then a + 0 = a and 0 + a = a.

Examples:

(i) 4 + 0 = 4 and 0 + 4 = 4 \ 4 + 0 = 4 = 0 + 4 (ii) (–6) + 0 = –6 and 0 + (–6) = –6 \ (–6) + 0 = –6 = 0 + (–6).

##### Property 5.

For every integer a, there exists its opposite –a such that a + (–a) = 0 = (–a) + a.

Examples:

3 + (–3) = 0 and (–3) + 3 = 0 \ 3 + (–3) = 0 = (–3) + 3. Thus, additive inverse of 3 is –3 and the additive inverse of –3 is 3. Property 6. Every integer has a successor and a predecessor, i.e., for every integer a, a – 1 and a + 1 are integers which are known as predecessor and successor respectively.

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 6.3 Important Questions

##### Write successor and predecessor of 6 and -3.

(i) 7 is successor of 6 and the predecessor of 6 is 5.

(ii) –4 and –2 are respectively the predecessor and successor of –3.

##### Subtract: (i) 6 from 9 (ii) –8 from –2 (iii) –5 from 12 Solution: (i) In order to subtract 6 from 9, we change the sign of 6 and add it to 9. Thus, 9 – 6 = 9 + (–6) = 3 (ii) Using the rule of subtraction –2 – (–8) = –2 + 8 = 6 (iii) Using the rule of subtraction 12 – (–5) = 12 + 5 = 17.

(i) In order to subtract 6 from 9, we change the sign of 6 and add it to 9. Thus, 9 – 6 = 9 + (–6) = 3

(ii) Using the rule of subtraction –2 – (–8) = –2 + 8 = 6

(iii) Using the rule of subtraction 12 – (–5) = 12 + 5 = 17.

##### Find the value of: (i) 832 + (–183) + (–832) + 213 + 2150, (ii) –18 – [(–42) + (–9) – 5]

(i) 832 + (–183) + (–832) + 213 + 2150 = 832 – 183 – 832 + 213 + 2150

= 832 – 183 – 832 + 213 + 2150

= – 183 – 832 + 832 + 213 + 2150 (collecting the integers with ‘+’ and ‘–’ signs)

= – 1015 + 3195 = 2180

(ii) –18 – [(–42) + (–9) – 5] = – 18 – [(–42) + (–9) – 5]

= – 18 – [–42 – 9 – 5] = – 18 – [– 56]

= – 18 + 56 = 38.

##### Calculate: 5 + 45 – 3 – 28 – 34 + 25 – 21 + 42 – 38

We can write 5 + 45 + 25 + 42 – 3 – 28 – 34 – 21 – 38

= 117 – 124 = -7

#### Subtraction of Integers

subtraction is the reverse operation of addition. For example, subtracting 4 from 8 is same as finding a number which when added to 4 gives 8. Clearly, the answer is 4.

Thus, 8 – 4 = 4.

Thus, we find that to subtract –3 from 7, we add the negative or additive inverse of –3 to 7.

In fact, this is the rule for subtraction of integers as stated below:

###### Rule:

If a and b are two integers, then to subtract b from a, we change the sign of b and add it to a, i.e., a – b = a + (–b).

Thus, for subtracting two integers, we take the additive inverse of the integer to be subtracted and add it to the another integer.

#### Properties of Subtraction of Integers

##### Property 1:

If a and b are integers, then a – b is also an integer.

Examples:

(i) 3 – 6 = –3 which is an integer.

(ii) 3 – (–6) = 9 which is an integer.

##### Property 2:

Subtraction of integers is not commutative, i.e., for any two integers a and b, a – b ≠ b – a.

Examples:

(i) 4 – 2 ≠ 2 – 4

(ii) – 9 – (–6) ≠ – 6 – (–9)

##### Property 3:

For every integer a, a – 0 = a, i.e., 0 is the right identity for subtraction.

We know that the addition of integers is commutative and associative. As a consequence of these two properties of addition and the subtraction of integers, we are now in a position to find the values of the expression containing many terms with plus and minus sign, by using the following steps.

Step 1. Put all terms containing plus sign together and add them.

Step 2. Put all terms containing minus sign together and add them.

Step 3. Find the difference of the absolute values of the two sums obtained in steps 1 and 2.

Step 4. Give the result of step 3, the sign of the sum having large absolute value.

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 6.3 Extra Questions with Answer

##### What is the closure property of addition of integers?

(Closure Property): The sum of two integers is also an integer, i.e., for any of two integers a and b, a + b is also an integer. Examples:

3 + 5 = 8 and 8 is an integer.

##### Explain associative property of addition of integers.

Associative Property:

The addition of integers is associative, i.e., for any three integers a, b and c,

we have, (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

Example:

Consider the integers – 6, 3 and –17. We have, [(–6) + 3] –17 = –3 – 17 = –20 and (–6) + [3 + (–17)] = –6 – 14 = –20 \ [(–6) + 3] – 17 = (–6) + [3 + (–17)].

##### The sum of two integers is 64. If one of the integers is –25, find the other.

Sum of two integers is 64, one integer is -25

Let second integer is a, then a + (-25) = 64

So, another integer will be 64 – (-25) = 64 + 25 = 89
