# COMPLETE ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION EQUATIONS WITH INTEGERS

Complete addition and subtraction equations with integers :

To complete the addition and subtraction equations with integers easily, we can apply the concept of solving one step equations.

• Let "x" be the missing integer.
• In order to get the missing integer, we have to isolate "x"
• By using inverse operations, we can get rid of the addends.
• Inverse operations means, if the missing integer is added by another number then we have to subtract the same number on both sides.
• If the missing integer is subtracted from another number then we have to add the same number on both sides.

From this we will get the value of "x". That is the missing integer.

Let us see some example problems based on the above concept.

## Complete addition and subtraction equations with integers - Examples

Example 1 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

x + 20 = 17

In order to isolate x, we have to subtract 20 on both sides.

x + 20 - 20 = 17 - 20

x = -3

Hence the missing number is -3.

Example 2 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

-7 + x = 17

In order to isolate x, we have to add 7 on both sides.

-7 + x + 7 = 17 + 7

x = 24

Hence the missing number is 24.

Example 3 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

x + 5 = -10

In order to isolate x, we have to subtract 5 on both sides

x + 5 - 5  =  -10 - 5

x = -15

Hence the missing number is -15.

Example 4 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

-12 + x = -19

In order to isolate x, we have to add 12 on both sides

-12 + x + 12  =  -19 + 12

x = -7

Hence the missing number is -7.

Example 5 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

-18 + x = -20

In order to isolate x, we have to add 18 on both sides

-18 + x + 18  =  -20 + 18

x = -2

Hence the missing number is -2.

Example 6 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

-11 + x = -17

In order to isolate x, we have to add 11 on both sides

-11 + x + 11  =  -17 + 11

x = -6

Hence the missing number is -6.

Example 7 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

-11 + x = -17

In order to isolate x, we have to add 11 on both sides

-11 + x + 11  =  -17 + 11

x = -6

Hence the missing number is -6.

Example 8 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

40 - x = 28

In order to isolate x, we have to subtract 40 on both sides

40 - x  - 40  =  28 - 40

-x = -12

Multiplying by negative on both sides.

x = 12

Hence the missing number is 12.

Example 9 :

Find the missing integer that makes the following statement true.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

x - 5 = 23

In order to isolate x, add 5 on both sides

x - 5 + 5  =  23 + 5

x = 28

Hence the missing number is 28.

Solution :

Let "x" be the missing number

x - 25 = -17

In order to isolate x, we have to add 25 on both sides

x - 25 + 25 = - 17 + 25

x = 8

Hence the missing number is 8.
