# NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Math Chapter 6 Integers

Having learnt the concepts of natural numbers, number line, whole number and properties of whole numbers in this chapter students are introduced to the concept of integers. When whole numbers and negative numbers are taken together into account, this collection of numbers is known as Integers. So, – 1, – 2, – 3, – 4, ... called negative numbers are negative integers, and 1, 2, 3, 4, ... called positive numbers are the positive integers. Number line that was introduced in the chapter of whole numbers finds its utility in this chapter where the number line is used to place the integers and understand the operation of integers. It is important to understand the meaning and the difference between whole numbers and integers for a better understanding of their use in word problems and other complex concepts. Understanding integers help in the chapter of algebra where students have to use the properties learnt in this chapter to variables along with the numbers. The chapter has the following subtopics:

• Integers
The basis of the Integers are given here, and the number line is also introduced.
• Positive integer and negative integer
The place value of the integers is taught to the students on the number line.
• Operations on integers
The mathematical operations and their concept that can be performed on the integers are taught in this section. This section also deals with the rules of these operations.
