When is the sum of a positive integer and a negative integer zero?

When the absolute value of the positive integer is the same as the absolute value of the negative one.


How can you decide if the sum of two numbers is positive negative or zero without calculating the sum?

The sum of two negative numbers is positive and the sum of two negatives is negative. If you have both positive and negative numbers the sum can be either so look at the absolute value. If the negative number has a greater absolute value, the sum is negative. If the positive number has a greater absolute value the sum is positive. If the absolute values are equal, the sum is zero.


What is the sign for multiplication and addition?

If you multiply two numbers, the result will be positive, if both factors are positive, or if both are negative. Multiplying a positive number by a negative number, or a negative number by a positive number, results in a negative result.For addition, if you add two positive numbers, the result is positive. If you add two negative numbers, the result is negative. If you add a positive and a negative number, the result depends on which of the numbers has the greater absolute value. For example, if the positive number has the greater absolute value (distance from zero), the result will be positive.If you multiply two numbers, the result will be positive, if both factors are positive, or if both are negative.

When adding 2 integers will the answer be positive?

When adding two integers, the answer will be positive if both integers are positive, or if one is negative but its absolute value is smaller than the absolute value of the positive integer.


How do you find the absolute value of 1.5?

You ignore its sign ... positive or negative ... and just regard it as if it were a positive number. The absolute value of +1.5 and -1.5 are both 1.5 .


What do you do when subtracting a positive and a negative?

If you subtract a negative from a positive, add both of their absolute values. If you subtract a positive from a negative, add both of their absolute values and multiply by negative one.


How do you find the absolute value for an integer?

The term absolute value, in mathematics, simply means the positive value, so if you have a negative number such as minus six, the absolute value is six. You just convert all negative numbers to positive numbers, and the positive numbers remain as they are. That's all it means. The reason why we even have such a concept is that certain types of equations will have both positive and negative solutions, and you may want only the positive solution, so you specify the absolute value.


Is the sum of an absolute value is the same of their absolute values?

The sum of the absolute values of two numbers is greater or equal than the absolute values of the sum. It will be equal if both are positive or both are negative; greater if one is positive and one is negative. Try it out with some sample numbers!


What are 2 absolute values of 4?

the only absolute value would be 4, as the absolute value is the space that the number is away from zero. Both positive and negative four would equal four. On the other hand, if the negative sign was outside the absolute value ( -|4| ), then the number would be negative.


How do you get rid of absolute value in math?

You consider both cases, then the variable is positive and when it is negative. For example, |x|


What is the absolute value of a number?

Its distance from zero, always a positive number. The absolute value of a positive number is that number. The absolute value of a negative number is its positive equivalent. Usually denoted by vertical bars |n| The absolute value of both 7 and -7 is 7 |-7| = 7 |7| = 7 * * * * * Minor error above: the absolute value of 0 is 0, so not "always a positive number".


How do you find absolute value?

Ignore the sign of the number (whether it's positive or negative). Example: The absolute values of +8 and -8 are both the same. They're both 8 .


What is an absolute mean?

An absolute mean is a mean of the absolute magnitude of a function with both positive and negative values.


Do Positive numbers have negative square roots?

Yes. They have two square roots. Both have the same absolute value but one is positive while the other is negative. For example, sqrt(16) = -4 and +4


How many solutions do absolute value equations have?

An equation with absolute values instead of simple variables has twice as many solutions as an otherwise identical equation with simple variables, because every absolute value has both a negative and a positive counterpart.


How does the absolute value of -6 compare with the absolute the value of 5?

So the absolute value of a number is simply the positive value of a given number. (In our basic number system each number has both a positive and negative value such as -6 and 6). If you are dealing with basic numbers, simply drop the negative sign if there is one, or leave the number as is if there isn't, and you have the absolute value. |x| means the absolute value So |-6| = 6 and |5| = 5 So while -6 is less than 5, |6| (absolute value of -6) is larger than 5 :)


The absolute value of every integer is positive true or false?

I've never read anything about intergers, but I do knowthat the absolute value of every integer is positive.


What are two numbers with the same absolute value but different signs?

Its impossible if they are both absolute value with different signs. If they have different signs one would be absolute value and one would be negative value.


Why is the number zero so important?

Because it is the start of both negative and positive and is how you find absolute


What keys do you press to do absolute value on computer?

Absolute value is found simply by removing any positive or negative sign. It is signified by use of the vertical bar on both sides of the object. e.g. the absolute value of abc is |abc|. The key is normally found above the 'Enter' key, and shares the key with the backslash.


How can you know whether -2 C is less cold than -24C?

What is the thing in trig called that has a letter in the center and double vertical lines on both sides?

Double verticle lines surrounding an expression means to take the absolute value of the expression. The absolute value of an expression is the expression if it is positive, and the negative of the expression if it is negative, i.e. the unsigned distance from zero. Analytically, in order to process the expression, the absolute value of an expression is also the square root of the square of the expression.


Is this question true or false are there always two numbers thtj have the same absolute value?

Other than for the value 0, there are always two numbers that have the same absolute value: the number and the negative of the number, eg 2 and -2 both have the absolute value 2. There is no negative 0, so there is only the number 0 which has the absolute value 0.


Explain why the square root of 64 has a positive and a negative value?
