# Simplify the following expression: 35 + (-13) + (+8) - (-6).

The question is based on the operation of integers.

## Answer: 35 + (-13) + (+8) - (-6) = 36.

Let's use the rule of multiplication of integers to solve: 35 + (–13) + (+8) – (–6)

**Explanation:**

The rules for multiplication involving + and - are given by:

- (+) × (+) = +
- (+) × (-) = -
- (-) × (+) = -
- (-) × (-) = +

Therefore, 35 + (-13) + (+ 8) - (-6) = 35 - 13 + 8 + 6 = 35 + 8 + 6 - 13 = 36

### Thus, by simplifying the given expression: 35 + (–13) + (+8) – (–6) we get 36.
