Remember for the Exam: Integers

Negative numbers represent values below zero and positive numbers represent values above zero.

4+ (-2)= (-1) Is an addition statement.
3- (-1)= 4 Is a subtraction statement.

Opposite integers have the same numeral but different sign. 
Eg. (+3) and (-3)

If you need help understanding how to do this, I would suggest you use integer chips or a number line. It helps me when I get stuck. I hope it helps you too! :)
