# 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?

**Solution:**

Let us add the scores.

Scores of team A = - 40, 10, 0

Total score of team A = - 40 + 10 + 0 = -30

Scores of team B = 10, 0, - 40

Total scores of team B = 10 + 0 + (-40) = -30

So, the scores of both teams are equal.

Yes, we can add integers in any order.

We had already observed that scores obtained by both teams are numerically equal.

But their order is different. So, the scores obtained by both teams are equal.
