# Adding Integers on a Number Line

With the help of number line we can add integers.

It is better to show on examples how to do this.

**Example 1**. Find -1+4.

We draw -1 on a number line. Since we add positive number (4) we move 4 units to the right. Result is 3. So, -1+4=3.

**Answer: 3**.

Let's see how to add negative numbers.

**Example 2**. Find 5+(-3).

We draw 5 on a number line. Since we add negative number (-3) we move 3 units to the left. Result is 2. So, 5+(-3)=2.

**Answer: 2**.

Now, do the following exercise to remember this topic better.

**Exercise 1**. Find -5+5.

**Answer: 0**.

Next exercise.

**Exercise 2**. Find 4+(-7).

**Answer: -3**.
