# Addition of Integers on a Number Line

After learning representation of integers on a number
line now we will learn addition of integers on a number line. For the purpose
of learning addition of integers on a number line we have to keep certain
points things in mind.

- We know that positive numbers are on the right side of zero.
Hence while adding positive numbers we will move to the right side of number
line.

- We know that negative numbers are on the left side of zero.
Hence while adding negative numbers we will move to the left side of number
line.

Now we need
to follow certain steps for adding integers on number line.

- First we have to draw a number line
- Then mark the integers on the number line
- Then mark the first number of the addend on the number line
- Then mark the second number of the addend on the number line

Now if the second addend is positive we will move to the right
side of the number line

If the second addend is negative then we will move to the left
side of the number line

Here are few examples to show to addition of integers on
a number line.

**1. Add 3
and 2 on a number line.**

**Solution:**

The first number is 3 (positive) so we moved 3 steps to
the right of zero to reach 3 and then the second number is also positive so we
moved two more steps to the right again to reach 5.

Therefore, 3 + 2 = 5

**2. Add
(-2 ) + (-2 ) on a number line.**

**Solution:**

The first number is negative that is -2 so we
mover 2 steps to the left side of zero to reach -2. Then the second number is
also negative that is -2 so we will again move two steps to the left of zero to
reach at -4.

Therefore, (-2 ) + (-2 ) = - 4

**3. Add 4
+ (-2 ) on a number line.**

**Solution:**

Here the first number is positive 4 hence we will move 4
steps to the right side of zero to reach + 4. The second number is negative – 2
so we will move to the left to reach 2.

Therefore, 4 + (-2) = 2

**4. Add (- 4) + 3 on a number line.**

**Solution:**

Here the first number is -4 so we have to move 4 places
to the left side of zero to reach – 4. The second number is + 3 so we have to
move three steps to the right -4 to reach -1.

Therefore, (- 4) + 3 = -1

Here are few problems on the divisibility rules of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 which will help the learners in revising their concepts on the divisibility rules. 1. Check whether 3456 is divisible by 2? Solution: The last digit is an even number (i.e. 6) hence 3456 is

The divisibility rule of 10 states that If the last digit of a number is 0 then the given number is divisible by 10. For eg: Check whether 5400 is divisible by 10 or not? Solution: As the last digit of the number is 0 hence, 5400 is divisible by 10

This rule states that a number is divisible by 9 if the sum of its digits of the number is divisible by 9 For eg: Check whether 729 is divisible by 9 or not? Sum of the digits = 7 + 2 + 9 = 18 Now 18 is divisible by 9 hence, 729 is also divisible by 9 Here are few examples

The most common method to check whether a number is divisible by 8 is to divide and see if the quotient is a whole number or not? If the quotient is a whole number then the given number is divisible by 8. But there is an easier way to check by using the divisibility rule.

This rule states that if the difference between twice the digit at units place and the number formed from the remaining digits of the given number is divisible by 7 then the whole number is divisible by 7.

This topic on divisible by 6 will discuss about the divisibility rule of 6 and few example on the same. Divisibility rule of 6: A number is divisible by 6 if the prime factor of that is 2 & 3 is divisible by 6. For Example: 216 216 is divisible by 2 as the last digit 6 is

This topic on divisible by 5 will discuss on the divisibility rule of 5 and illustrate few example on the same. Divisibility Rule of 5: If a number ends with 0 or 5 then the number is divisible by 5. For Example: 550 Since the number ends with 0 hence the number is divisible

This topic i on divisibility rule of 4 and will provide examples on the same. Divisibility Rule of 4: If the last two digits of the number is divisible by 4 then the whole number is divisible by 4 For eg: 524 The last two digit of the number is 24 which is divisible by 4.

This topic is on the divisibility rule of 3 and few examples based on the topic. If the sum of the digits is divisible by 3 then the whole number is divisible by 3. For example 519 The sum of the digits = 5 + 1 + 9 = 15 15 is divisible by 3 hence 519 is also divisible by 3

This topic would deal with the divisibility rule of 2 and few sums on divisibility rule of 2. Numbers that are ending with 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 are divisible by 2. That means numbers ending with 0 or multiples of 2 are divisible by 2. We know that numbers which are multiples of
