**Integer Word ProblemsFor each:1) Copy the word problem into**your notebook2) Explain a solution to the problem( In words how would you solve the problem)3) Solve and tell which integer operation rule you had to follow**Problem: The temperature in Anchorage, Alaska was 8°F in**the morning and dropped to -5°F in the evening. What is the difference between these temperatures?* Solution:* Answer/Rule Used:**Problem: George owes his friend Jeanne $3. If he borrows**another $6, how much will he owe her altogether? • Solution: • Answer/Rule Used:**Problem: Mrs. Jenson owes $8,000 on her car loan.

How much money**does she owe? • Solution: • Answer/Rule Used**Now Check your answers!!!**• If you got it right GREAT!!! • If you got it wrong compare your work, to a person sitting at your table to see where you went wrong in the problem, and learn how to correct your mistakes!!!!**Answers:**• 1) +8 to 0 is 8, and the distance from 0 to -5 is 5, for a total of 13. • 2) This problem is quite simple: just add $3 and $6 and the result is $9 • 3) -8,000 ÷+4 = -2,000. Each of Mrs. Jenson's four children will pay $2,000. Let's look at some more examples of dividing integers using the above rules • 4) The opposite of -282 is +282, so we get: +20,320 - -282 = +20,320 + +282 = +20,602 • 5) Owing $6 can be represented by -6. Thus the problem becomes: (-6) (+4)
