Integers can be found in many places. Any where you find a number, a street address, a telephone number, etc. is an integer. Take in mind that in a telephone number, the number itself is not an integer, integers create how the number looks. You find integers in temp.(not body temp. because you use decimals in body temp.) and also in stock market change. With the Stock Market only use the point change. Football is probably the best example because you gain and loose yards. Golf is a great example also. Speed is also represented by integer. Basically, anything not a decimal is an integer.

When the numbers are negative, negative they equal a positive. In other words, same signs equal positive. 2: This rule is very similar to the rule above. The only change is that when the signs are different, they equal a negative. ( negative, positive= negative, positive, negative= negative.) Please correct me if I'm wrong.
