if they are both negative, add like they are positive numbers, but just add the negative sign.

Yes - depending, of course, how you define "whole number". Because there is not a single definition, it is better to avoid using the term "whole numbers" (except for the initial, informal, explanations), and instead talk about "integers", "positive integers", "non-negative integers", etc., depending what you are talking about.

assume that whatever integers you are using are the variables in this. If you haven't been given integers, assume (for the sake of simplicity) that they are one. a * b * c * d * e * f = x -a * b * c * d * e * f = -x -a * -b * c * d * e * f = x -a * -b * -c * d * e * f = -x see a pattern? any ODD number of negative integers will lead to a negative answer, therefore with the limit being 6, the answer will be 5.

The integers are -6, -5 and -4 OR -7, -5 and -3 using only consecutive odd integers.

That's a 'rational' number.

the answer depends on what kind of numbers you are dealing with. If you are using only integers then there is no answer to this question. Integers are numbers without decimals, both negative, positive and zero. If you are using real numbers (which includes decimals), then then there are an infinite number of possibilities between 1 and 0 (ie. 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.87, 0.6543 etc..).

The set of natural numbers (counting numbers) {1,2,3,4....} corresponds to the positive integers. Note that the number 0 is neither positive nor negative. So anytime you want to count something you use natural numbers, which means you are also using positive integers.
