In a quiz, team A scored - 40, 10, 0 and team B scored 10, 0, - 40 in three successive rounds. Which team scored more? Can we say that we can add integers in any order?

It is given in the question that,


Scores of Team A = -40, 10, 0


Therefore,


Total score of Team A = - 40 + 10 + 0


= - 30


Also,


Scores of Team B = 10, 0, -40


Therefore,


Total score of Team B = 10 + 0 + (-40)


= 10 – 40


= - 30


Hence,


It is clear from the above results that scores of both teams are equal


Yes, we can also add integers in any order. As in the above cas scores of both the teams are equal in numerical terms but different in order
