Yes.

When they are added together and the absolute value of the positive integer is bigger than the absolute value of the negative integer or when the negative integer is subtracted from the positive integer.

If the integer subtracted is smaller than or equal to the first integer, then the answer is positive. Otherwise, if the integer subtracted is larger, then the answer is negative.

No, any negative number subtracted from a positive is like addition. For example 1 - (-1) is the same as 1 + 1, so by adding two positive numbers you can't get zero.

Yes. The product of a negative integer and a positive integer is a negative integer.

negative number subtracted FROM a negative number will be negative

a negative integer

Yes, and also a negative integer divided by a negative integer is equal to a positive number (but not necessarily an integer).

As long as the negative integer is greater than the positive integer, a negative integer will result from addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

It is positive as for example: -2*-2*-2*-2 = 16

A negative integer multiplied by a negative integer is always a positive integer product. -x * -y = xy

The number was less than -2, for example - 3,000,000 -3,000,000 -(-2) = -3,000,000 + 2 = -2,999,998

No. It would NEVER be negative.

If you subtract a positive from a negative, you will get a negative.

you get a negative integer

When the absolute value of the positive integer is smaller than the absolute value of the negative one.

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.

No. The sum of a positive integer and a negative integer has the same sign as the larger integer.

negative*negative=positive ex. negative 2*negative 2= positive 4

One (negative) is preceded by a - sign and the other (positive) is not. Negative integers have values less than zero, whereas positive integers have values greater than zero. If a positive and negative integer are made up of the same digits and in the same order (e.g., 2 and -2, or 896 and -896), then when added together they will equal zero. If, however, one is subtracted from the other, then they will equal twice the number from which the other is subtracted.

4. The opposite of an integer is a positive if the integer is negative and negative it the integer is positive.

negative

Any positive integer plus any negative integer will always equal an integer. The results will be either a positive integer, a negative integer or zero.it depends which is bigger. if the positive integer is bigger the answer will be positive. and if the negative integer is bigger the answer will be negative.
