Q1 Using the number line write the integer which is :

(a) more than

(b) more than

(c) less than

(d) less than

Answer: (a) more than

The answer is 5 + 3 = 8

(a) more than

The answer is 5 + 3 = 8

Q2 Use number line and add the following integers :

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

(f)

Answer: Addition by using the number line method-

(a)

Initially, move 0 to 9 and then 6 number left to the 9 on the numberline.

Q3 Add without using number line :

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

(f)

Answer: In addition without using the number line, in this method, we have to split one number according to the other number such that .

Now,

(a) = 4 + (7)+ (-7) = 4

(b)

= -13 + (13) + 5

= 5

(c)

= (- 10) + (10) + 9

= 9

(d)

= (- 100) + (- 150) + (150)

= - 100

(e)

= - (380 + 270 )

= - 650

(f)

= - (217 + 100)

= - 317

Q4 Find the sum of:

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

Answer: It is known that the sum of .

Therefore,

(a) the sum of

= 137 + (-137) + (- 217)

= - 217

(b) the sum of

= -52 + 52 = 0

(c) the sum of

= (- 231) + (81) + (39 + 192 )

= (- 81) + (- 231) + (231)

= - 81

(d) the sum of

= - (50 + 200 ) + (300)

= - 250 + (250) + 50

= 50

Q5 Find the sum :

(a)

(b)

Answer: It is known that the sum of .

Therefore,

(a)

= - (9 + 7) + 4 + 16

= (- 16) + 4 + 16

= 4

Also we can split the 16 into (- 9 and -7 ).

(b)

= 37 + (- 37) + (- 28) + (-2) + (- 8)

= 0 - (37 + 28 + 8)

= - 73

## NCERT solutions for class 6 maths chapter 6 Integers Exercise: 6.3

Q1 Find

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

(f)

Answer: It is known that the sum of .

So, we have to split the number in order to cancel out with other numbers.

(a)

= 15 + (- 20) + 20

= 15 + 0 = 15

(b)

= 72 - (72) - 18

= 0 - 18 = -18

(c)

= (- 15) + 18

= (- 15) + (15) + 3

= 0 + 3 = 3

(d)

= - (20 + 13 )

= -33

(e)

= 23 + 12

= 35

(f)

= (- 32) + 40

= (- 32) + (32) + 8

= 0 + 8

= 8

Q2 Fill in the blanks with or sign.

(a) (– 3) + (– 6) ______ (– 3) – (– 6)

(b) (– 21) – (– 10) _____ (– 31) + (– 11)

(c) 45 – (– 11) ______ 57 + (– 4)

(d) (– 25) – (– 42) _____ (– 42) – (– 25)

Answer: (a) (– 3) + (– 6) ______ (– 3) – (– 6)

LHS - 3 - 6 = -9

RHS - 3 + 6 = +3

Hence LHS < RHS

(b) (– 21) – (– 10) _____ (– 31) + (– 11)

LHS - 21 +10 = -11

RHS -31 - 11 = -42

Hence LHS > RHS

(c) 45 – (– 11) ______ 57 + (– 4)

LHS 45 + 11 = 66

RHS 57 - 4 =53

Hence LHS > RHS

(d) (– 25) – (– 42) _____ (– 42) – (– 25)

LHS - 25 + 42 = 17

RHS -42 + 25 = -17

Hence LHS > RHS

Q3 Fill in the blanks.

(a) (– 8) + _____ = 0

(b) 13 + _____ = 0

(c) 12 + (– 12) = ____

(d) (– 4) + ____ = – 12

(e) ____ – 15 = – 10

Answer: a) (– 8) + _____ = 0

Since we know that, . Therefore, the blank space should be + 8.

(b) 13 + _____ = 0

The sum is zero. Therefore it should be additive inverse of 13. -13( is the answer)

(c) 12 + (– 12) = ____

Since we know that, So, the answer is Zero (0)

(d) (– 4) + ____ = – 12

The integer in blank space should be -8

(e) ____ – 15 = – 10

The integer in blank space should be +5

Q4 Find

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

Answer: We already know that the sum of the additive inverse is Zero ( )

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)
