**Reiny**, Friday, October 9, 2009 at 8:55amWhen you are first learning how to add/subtract integers, a good way is to re-arrange the numbers so that the same signs are together.

-14+26-37-45+56-67-71

= -14 -37 -45 -67 -71 +26 +56

= -234 +82

= -251

A quick way to check is to simply type your question into the Google window, like this
