Ok here's the rules for this math problem.
If you go under -2,147,483,647 the remainder rolls over expressed as a positive number. If you go over 2,147,483,647 the remainder rolls over expressed as a negative number or 0 if it comes out to 0. You can use all these numbers as many times as you need to in any combination of ways as well as any new numbers that come from adding these numbers together. You are only allowed to use addition.
Your goal is to reach 0 in as few moves as possible.
I don't know if it is mathematical possible but it is for a project I'm working on for a game if 0 isn't possible as close to 0 as you can get.
Here are the numbers

Are you saying that
-2,147,483,647 becomes 0
-2,147,483,648 becomes +1
-2,147,483,649 becomes +2
etc

+2,147,483,647 becomes 0
+2,147,483,648 becomes -1
+2,147,483,649 becomes -2
etc
