The sum of two negative integers is never positive.

The sum of two positive integers can never equal zero.

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

No. Two negative integers added together will never equal a positive integer. It is the product of two negative integers that is positive.

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.

yes . same positive, different integers are a negative.

The sum of two positive integers is positive. The sum of two negative integers is negative. The sum of one positive integer and one negative integer has the same sign as the addend with the greater absolute value. If the absolute values of the two addends are equal, the sum is zero.

No . Since an integer can be a negative number, it's possible for the sum of two integers to be negative.

The sum of two integers is positive whenever the integer with the larger absolute value is positive. The sign of the other one doesn't matter.

The sum is always positive (and it never yields a prime number?)

Two positive integers whose sum is 14 includes 6 and 8

The sum of two positive integers is never zero. The sum of two numbers a and b can only be zero if a=-b, or a=0 and b=0. Since 0 is not a positive integer, and a and b cannot both be positive integers if a=-b, then it is impossible for the sum of two positive integers to be zero. _______________________________________________________________ The above answer is correct. Here is another way to say it: An integer is any whole number including negative numbers, positive numbers and zero. However, a "positive integer" is a whole number greater than zero. The "sum of two positive integers" means you are adding two numbers greater than zero together. Therefore, the sum of two positive integers can never be a negative integer, and can never be zero. Example: 1 + 1 = 2

diffrence will always be positive except when it is zero but is you speak of substraction operation it can be positive negative or zero

No. Since an integer can be a negative number, it's possible for the sum of two integers to be negative.

The rules for addition are as follows:The sum of two negative integers is a negative integerThe sum of two positive integers is a positive integerThe rules for subtraction are as follows:If they are two positive numbers, do it normallyIf there is a negative and a positive ,change it to addition and switch the SECOND integer sign

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

There are two consecutive odd integers whose sum is 340. They are 169 and 171.

no. eg. -2 + -9 =-11 &lt;&lt;this is negative if you were to multiply two negative integers, you would get a positive integer.
