Best Answer

It depends, if a number with positive integers is greater than the number with the negative integer therefore the sum will be in positive integer. And if the number with positive integer is less than the number with the number with negative integer then the sum will be in negative integer.

False.

No, integers can be positive or negative.

nothing here is an example -4+5=1 4+(-5)=-1unless you add negative to negative or positive to positive then you'd keep the sign

True, an example of this is 1 - 2 = -1 1 - -------2 is = to -15000 fact

An integer is a whole number (not a fractional number) that can be positive, negative or zero - so true

true because if it is an absolute integer it cant be negative and 0 is nor a negative number or positive. so it would always be positive. Example- l-7l its absolute value would be 7, or l4l its absolute value would be 4.

False. Counterexample: -1 - (-2) = -1 + 2 = 1.

yes the answer is always a positive

Adding two negative numbers will always be negative. Subtracting two negative numbers may be positive or negative. Dividing or multiplying two negative numbers will always be positive.No

No. You have it backwards . . . . . the absolute value of a negative number is always a positive number.

Is false. If ' n ' is negative, then ' -n ' is positive.

Any negative integer can be factored to -1 times its positive value. Because negative one times itself is positive one, when multiplied by each other they cancel out. So if you're multiplying a negative integer A by a negative integer B. Replace A and B with -1*|A| and -1*|B| (You can do this because you know A and B are negative), and use the distributive property to rearrange them. Now you can see the -1*-1 term and equate it to 1, leaving only the |A| and |B| behind. Because two positive numbers multiplied together are always positive, the result will always be positive. Represented algebraically, as long as A and B are negative integers, the following is true: AB = -1|A|*-1|B| = -1*-1|AB| = |AB|.
