No. It would NEVER be negative.

positive

An integer is a whole number. Adding a integer would just mean to add a whole number.

-1.5 would be a negative non-integer.

A negative integer is any whole number which is negative. For example -3 is a negative integer because it's a whole number and it's negative. However -3.24 would not be a negative integer because it's not whole. 3 would not be a negative integer either because it's positive rather than negative.

A positive integer would just be a regular number like 2. A negative integer is a negative number like -2. (2 below zero)

No, because if the positive was 8, and the negative was -4, the difference would be positive four.

No, because if the positive was 8, and the negative was -4, the difference would be positive four.

Adding a negative integer is like subtracting a positive one. If you accept that 7 - 7 = 0 (because anything minus itself equals zero) then it stands to reason that 7 + -7 would equal zero as well.

-0.8 would not be an integer because it is a decimal and decimals are not integers. An integer is a whole number negative or positive.

an integer is any whole number (not a decimal) that is either positive or negative. because of this, there are almost unlimited answers to this question. the answer would have to be positive because any negative number multiplied by another negative number becomes positive. if the integer was -4, then -42 would be 16. if the integer was 4, then the answer would still be 16

Think of a number line with 0 in the middle. A negative integer (-3) makes you go back 3 on the number line. Now if you add a positive integer (2) you go forward two integers, landing on -1. If you are adding two negatives, the negatives cancel out and you get a positive number. In math, two wrongs make a right!

-465 is a negative integer which is a whole number

The least non negative integer would be 1.

No,because if you add -5 and 10 you get 5 which is not equal to zero. They way you would get 0 as an answer is if you add a negative integer and it's opposite like -5 and 5. Then your answer would be zero.

The set of non-negative integers.

No, the sum of two negative integers is not a positive integer. For example, if you add -5 and -6 together the sum would be -11.

It would be negative zero.

Say you're adding -2+(-2). Adding negative two is equavilant to subtracting positive two. Both -2+(-2) would be -4. I hope that made sense.

337,subtracting a negative is the same as adding

Yes. ie) -8-3=x The problem would change to: -8+(-3)=x x=-11 So just make it a negative plus a negative.

This would be impossible - since the mean of the three integers would have to be an integer, and if you divide -56 by 3, you do not get an integer.

when you add two positive integers the answer is always positive when you add two negative integers the answer is positive when you add one negative and on positive integer, the answer is negative subtracting two negative numbers gets a negative answer subtracting two positive numbers- the answer depends subtracting a negative and positive number- the answer depends, the positive number would have to be bigger than the negative to achieve a negative number, and if the positive number is less, than the answer is still negative

No. The negative integers would be -1, -2, -3,... and so forth. Negative fractions or negative decimals that won't reduce are not negative integers.

A whole number is called an integer. The opposite of a whole number is a negative integer. An example would be 4 and -4.
