If the absolute value of the positive integer is greater than the absolute value of the negative integer, then the sum of the two will be positive.
If the absolute value of the positive integer is less than the absolute value of the negative integer, then the sum will be negative.
If the absolute values of the two integers are the same then the sum will be zero, which has neither a negative nor a positive sign.
