No, not every negative number is an integer. For example, -11/2 is not an integer. However, -1, -2, -3, and so on, are negative integers. Perhaps that is what you meant to ask. The negative of every positive integer is a negative integer.

It is a negative integer, a negative rational integer, a negative real number.

Yes, and also a negative integer divided by a negative integer is equal to a positive number (but not necessarily an integer).

Unless the integer is fractional it is not an irrational number.

Negative. Sorry. No you do not. Adding a negative to a negative gives you a number that is even more negative. Picture a number line. A negative number is to the left of zero, and adding a negative number moves further left. ■
