Summer temperatures in Minnesota are around 30 Celsius, while in winter they go down to -30 Celsius. The first one is a natural number, and the second one is the same natural number with a minus sign. Both belong to the set of integer numbers (integers). We introduce these numbers to solve equations of type a+x = b not only for a ≤ b, but also in the case of a > b. The arithmetics developed so far for natural numbers will be extended to integers.
