Worksheet Overview

This activity is about adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers.




181  + 431 =  594

-464 + 445  = -19


Remember that -464 + 445 is the same as 445 - 464





420 - 421 = -1

-160 - 160 = -320


Think of a number line if it helps.  When you subtract, you move to the left to make a number more negative.
