# (-8) + (-8) + (-8) = _____ × (-8). Fill in the blank to make the statement true

**Solution:**

The requirement of the above question is to fill the blank using the integer rules and make the statement true.

The given expression is (-8) + (-8) + (-8) = _____ × (-8).

Now let us put the integer rules to identify the correct value at blank space.

= (-8) + (-8) + (-8) = _____ × (-8)

= (-8) + (-8) + (-8) = -24

= 3 × (-8) = -24

Therefore, the correct value to be filled in the blank to make the statement true is (-8) + (-8) + (-8) = ** 3** × (-8)

**✦ Try This: **Fill in the blank with correct integer value:(-9) + (-9) + (-9) + (-9) + (-9) = _____ × (-9).

We can apply integer rules and the order of operations to identify the value of (-9) + (-9) + (-9) + (-9) + (-9) = _____ × (-9)
