What is the rule of addition of integers?

negetive integers are not closed under addition but positive integers are.

Are integers closed under division?

No. Integers are not closed under division because they consist of negative and positive whole numbers. NO FRACTIONS!No.For a set to be closed under an operation, the result of the operation on any members of the set must be a member of the set.When the integer one (1) is divided by the integer four (4) the result is not an integer (1/4 = 0.25) and so not member of the set; thus integers are not closed under division.

What set of numbers is closed under division?

Integers are closed under division I think o.o. It's either counting numbers, integers or whole numbers . I cant remember :/

How are the rules for multiplication and division integers the same?

They are not the same!The set of integers is closed under multiplication but not under division.Multiplication is commutative, division is not.Multiplication is associative, division is not.

Give example of closure property?

Add two positive integers and you ALWAYS have a positive integers. The positive integers are closed under addition.

Why are rational numbers not like integers?

The set of rational numbers is closed under division, the set of integers is not.

True or False The set of whole numbers is closed under subtraction Why?

A set is closed under a particular operation (like division, addition, subtraction, etc) if whenever two elements of the set are combined by the operation, the answer is always an element of the original set. Examples: I) The positive integers are closed under addition, because adding any two positive integers gives another positive integer. II) The integers are notclosed under division, because it is not true that an integer divided by an integer is an integer (as in the case of 1 divided by 5, for example). In this case, the answer depends on the definition of "whole numbers". If this term is taken to mean positive whole numbers (1, 2, 3, ...), then the answer is no, they are not closed under subtraction, because it is possible to subtract two positive whole numbers and get an answer that is not a positive whole number (as in the case of 1 - 10 = -9, which is not a positive whole number)

Which set is closed under the given operation 1 integers under division 2 negative integers under subtraction 3 odd integers under multiplication?

1 No. 2 No. 3 Yes.

Is the set of integers closed under subtraction?

yes, because an integer is a positive or negative, rational, whole number. when you subject integers, you still get a positive or negative, rational, whole number, which means that under the closure property of real numbers, the set of integers is closed under subtraction.

What is the differences between positive and negative integer?

Positive integers are greater than zero, negative integers are less than zero. The set of positive integers is closed under multiplication (and form a group), the set of negative integers is not.

Is the collection of integers closed under subraction?

Yes, the set of integers is closed under subtraction.

What property do all nonzero numbers have that integers do not?

Of not being equal to zero. Also, of being closed under division.
