Q: Is the sum of two numbers is greater than either number?

Write your answer...

The product of any numbers greater one is greater than either.

The sum of two numbers will almost always be greater than either number. The only exception would be when dealing with two negative numbers.

Positive numbers are greater than negative numbers. Decimals can be either positive or negative.

Not always.

Consider 4 cases 1. The sum of any two positive numbers is clearly greater than either number. 2. The sum of any two negative numbers is LESS than either of the two numbers. ( (Look at -2+(-3)=-5 .) 3. The sum of any negative number and a positive number is always greater than the negative number but less than the positive number. (Look at -2+3=1, or -5+3=-2) 4. The sum of any number and 0 is that number so it is not greater. So it appears that the sum of any two numbers is greater than either of the two numbers when the two number are both positive.

No. If one of the numbers is 0 it is less; if one of the numbers is 1 it is the same as one of them; otherwise the product is greater than either

Not if either of the numbers is between 0 and 1. 5*0.5 = 2.5 is not greater than 5 0.3*0.4 = 0.12 is smaller than both multiplicands.

No, not when negative numbers are involved. For example, -2 is a multiple of both -1 and 1 and is not greater than either.

No. A mixed number must be greater than 1, and two numbers that are greater than one that are multiplied together end up being greater that either number by itself.

There are more composite numbers than prime numbers, but there is no prime or composite number so great that you can't find a greater one of either kind.

Not true if either of the numbers is negative.

A positive number is any number greater than zero. 1 is a positive number, so is 2, 2.5, 3.14159, 11, 11.25 etc 0.5 is a positive number. The product of two positive numbers is the result of multiplying them together. * 2 x 3 = 6 (the product). In this case the product is greater than either number. But... * 0.5 x 0.25 is 0.125. ~In this case the product is actually smaller than either of the two numbers! * Or 0.5 x 10 = 5 . Here the product is greater than 0.5 but smaller than 10. So the answer is ...sometimes!

I don't know how to "grate" a number ... numbers are not cheese. An infinite number of numbers are "greater" (larger) than 64. Likewise, an infinite number of numbers are not "greater" (in other words, less than) 64, starting with 63, 62, 61, ... Actually, there are an infinite numbers that are less than 64, but greater than 63, unless you specify "whole numbers".

Positive numbers are greater than zero.

the sum of two whole numbers is always greater than either addend* * * * *No.Consider:5 is a whole number-3 is a whole number.Their sum is 2, which is notgreater than one of the addends (5).

The greater of two numbers is 7 more than the lesser Three times the greater number is 5 more than 4 times the lesser number Find the numbers?

All whole numbers greater than zero are natural numbers.

There are an infinite amount of numbers greater than two that are composite numbers. Every even number, for instance, is a composite number

92 is an even number greater than 2 and all even numbers greater than 2 are composite numbers.

All positive numbers are greater than zero.

Yes, if both the numbers have the same sign. But not if only one of them is negative.

how do you create a decimal or a mixed number that is either greater or less than any number

There are infinitely many numbers: for example any number greater than 6, for example.

No, it's never greater than the smallest number.

There are an infinite number of primes greater than any number given.
