To find the sum of two integers with different signs, you simply combine them, and give the result the sign of the larger integer. For example, you have two integers: -9 and +5. You combine them, that is the +5 cancels out 5 of the -9, leaving -4.

-- Ignore the signs for a moment. -- Find the difference of the two integers. -- Give it the sign of whichever integer is the bigger number.

- Always, if the two integers are both positive. - Sometimes, if the two integers have different signs. - Never, if the two integers are both negative.

Yes. The sign of the sum is the same as the sign of the larger interger integer.

if the 2 signs are negative, than the sum is negative. if the 2 signs are positive, than the sum is positive.

The sum will take on the sign of whatever number is greater, regardless of sign. -36 + 43 will be positive. 36 + -43 will be negative.

Depends on how large each integer is. +1-2 or +2-1. Different signs depending on the size of the integers.

The sum of the squares of two consecutive positive even integers is 340. Find the integers.

find three consecutive integers whose sum is - 93

Choose any integer. Let's call it "n". Then subtract 8 - n, to get the other integer. (For the two integers to have different signs, one of the integers must be greater than 8, the other will be negative.)

They will be the same absolute value with opposite signs. They don't even have to be integers.

The sum of any two consecutive integers must be an odd number. So this question is incorrect.

No.For the sum of integers:-- two positives make a positive-- two negatives make a negative-- the sum of mixed signs is the sign of the one with the greater absolute valueFor the product of integers:-- like signs make a positive-- unlike signs make a negative

Find three different positive integers that sum to seven?

you add them together?

If the integers are the same, then the sum is always zero.If the integers are different, then the sum is never zero.If there's no rule governing the choice of integers, then the sum is sometimes zero.By the way . . . we're talking about 'integers', not 'intergers'.

To find the sum of integers, you use addition.To find the difference, you use subtraction.

-- Their sum and difference both have the same sign that the two integers have. -- Their product and quotient are both positive.

yes . same positive, different integers are a negative.

There are two consecutive odd integers whose sum is 176. They are 87 and 89.
