Addition of Numbers using Number Line
Addition of numbers using number line will help us to learn
how a number line can be used for addition.
Addition of numbers can be well understood with the help of
the number line. Keep in mind the following rules of movements on the number
line.
(i) In order to add a positive number, we move the same
number of steps to the right on the number line as the value of the number.
(ii) In order to add a negative number, we move the same
number of steps to the left on the number line as the value of the number.
Addition
of numbers using number line in different situation:
1. Addition of a positive number to a
positive number,
For example: (+2) + (+3)
First of all, for +2, count 2 units to the right of zero
(because right side is for the positive sign). Then for +3 move three units to
the right of +2. Thus, we reach at +5.
Therefore, (+2) + (+3) = +5 or simply we can write, 5.
2. Addition of a positive number to a negative
number,
For example: (+3) + (-4).
For +3, move 3 units to the right of zero and then for -4,
move 4 units to the left of 3.
Thus, we reach at -1.
Therefore (+3) + (-4) = -1.
3. Addition of a negative number to a positive
number,
For example: (-4) + (+3)
For -4, move
4 units to the left of zero and then for +3, move 3 units to the right of -4.
Thus, we
reach at -1.
Therefore (-4) + (+3) = -1.
4. Addition of a negative number to a negative
number,
For example: (-2) + (-4)
For -2, start from zero and move two units to the left and then again for -4, move 4 units to the left of -2. Thus, we reach at -6.
Therefore (-2) + (-4) = -6.
Addition of Whole Numbers on Number Line
Addition of whole numbers can be shown on a number line.
1. Let us see the addition of 3 and 4.
The point at the tip of the leftmost arrow is 3. Start from 3. Since we add 4 to this number, we make 4 jumps to the right ie.. from 3 to 4, 4 to 5, 5 to 6 and 6 to 7 as shown above the tip of the rightmost arrow in the fourth jump is at 7.
Hence, sum of 3 and 4 is 7 i.c., 3 + 4 = 7.
2. Using the number line, write the whole number which is the sum of 5 and 4.
The point at the tip of the leftmost arrow is 5.
To find the sum of 5 and 4, start from 5 and proceed 4 units to the right to obtain the required result, i.e., 9, as shown in the following figure.
Hence, 5 + 4 = 9

Natural numbers are all the numbers from 1 onwards, i.e., 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …... and are used for counting. We know since our childhood we are using numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, ………..
In reading and writing large numbers we group place values into periods ‘ones or unit’, ‘tens’, ‘hundred’, ‘thousand’, ‘10 thousand’, ‘100 thousand’, ‘million’, ’10 million’, ‘100 million
Numbers are used for calculating and counting. These counting numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, .......... are called natural numbers. In order to describe the number of elements in a collection with no objects
The properties of addition whole numbers are as follows: Closure property: If a and b are two whole numbers, then a + b is also a whole number. In other words, the sum of any two whole numbers i
There are six properties of multiplication of whole numbers that will help to solve the problems easily. The six properties of multiplication are Closure Property, Commutative Property, Zero Property, Identity Property, Associativity Property and Distributive Property.
The procedure of estimating sum and difference are in the following examples. Example 1: Estimate the sum 5290 + 17986 by estimating the numbers to their nearest (i) hundreds (ii) thousands.
The procedure of estimating product and quotient are in the following examples. Example 1: Estimate the product 958 × 387 by rounding off each factor to its greatest place.
The properties of whole numbers are as follows: The number 0 is the first and the smallest whole numbers. • All natural numbers along with zero are called whole numbers.
Numbers on a line is called the representation of whole numbers on number line. The number line also helps us to compare two whole numbers, i.e., to decide which of the two given whole numbers
1. When zero is subtracted from the number, the difference is the number itself. For example, 8931 – 0 = 8931, 5649 – 0 = 5649 2. When a number is subtracted from itself the difference is zero. For example, 5485 – 5485 = 0 3. When 1 is subtracted from a number, we get its
The whole numbers are the counting numbers including 0. We have seen that the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6……. etc. are natural numbers. These natural numbers along with the number zero
Subtraction of numbers using number line will help us to learn how a number line can be used for subtracting one number from the another number.
Practice the questions given in the worksheet on reading and writing large numbers to group place values into periods in hundred, thousand, million and billion. The questions are related to writing
Practice the questions given in the worksheet on estimation. The questions are based on estimating the sum, difference, product and quotient to the nearest tens, hundreds and thousands.
The properties of adding integers are discussed here along with the examples. 1. The addition (sum) of any two integers is always an integer. For example: (i) 5 + 9 = 14 ∈ Z (ii) (-5) + 9 = 4 ∈ Z
