```OPERATIONS WITH REAL NUMBERS
1) Write if each statement is true or false.
a) The absolute value of a number is never negative.
b) The opposite of a negative number is a positive number.
c) The numbers -35 and 35 can be referred to as additive inverses, as well as opposites.
d) In adding or subtracting numbers, if the two numbers are both negatives, then you add the
numbers and keep the common sign of a negative.
e) In adding or subtracting numbers, if the two numbers are both positive, then you add the
numbers and keep the common sign of a positive.
f) In adding or subtracting numbers, if one number is positive and the other number is negative,
then you subtract the numbers and keep the sign of the larger number.
g) To simplify the expression, |5 - 8|, the negative sign changes to a positive sign and then the
numbers are added; i.e. |5 + 8| = |13| = 13.
h) In multiplying or dividing numbers, if both numbers are positive, then your product or
quotient is a positive number.
i) In multiplying or dividing numbers, if both numbers are negative, then your product or
quotient is a positive number.
j) In multiplying or dividing numbers, if one number is positive and the other is negative, then
your product or quotient is a negative number.
k) The product of -21 and 21 is estimated to be about 400.
2) Fill in the blanks <, >, or = to make a true expression.
a) 0 _____ -5
b) 6 _____ -7
c) -5 _____ -8
d) -(-6) _____ 6
e) |-10| _____ -10
f) - |-8| _____ -8
g) -|6 - 2| _____ -(2 + 3)
h) -(-9) _____ -|-9|
3) Perform the indicated operations.

f) 15 - (-25)
b) -10 + 5
c) 10 - (-5)
g) -27 + (-14)
d) 5 - 10
h) -50 - (-20)
