#### Grade 2 Operations - 2.NBT

Tips for Adding Three Integers - Adding numbers can be a confusing task when there are negative integers in the mix as well. Thus, it is necessary that the kids understand which integer should be solved first, depending on the type of integer. To solve these integers swiftly, the following set of tips needs to be kept in mind. Firstly, you need to learn which types of integers are present in a single question. For instance, 5 + (-6) + 3. In this equation, you can see that there are two positive integers and one negative integer. Thus, in such a scenario, you can add positive ones together and subtract the negative ones later. In another scenario, if there are two negative integers and one positive integer. For instance, -4 + (-6) + 3, the negative integers will be subtracted first. Then, you can add the positive integer 3 to the answer. In this series of lessons and worksheets students will learn how to find the sum of three integers.
