It would stay always stay negative if you're adding 2 negative integers.

yes the answer is always a positive

The sum of two negative integers is never positive.

The sum of two negative integers is always negative due to the commutative and associatve property. In other words, summing or adding two negative numbers results in a larger scalar negative number. ex -1 + -1 = -2

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

The sum will be negative also. (-3)+(-2)= m-5

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

No. Never.

-15 and 5

They are -15 and 5.

The integers are -2, -1, 0 and 1.

No. For example, 2 + 3 = 5 which is positive, and 2 + (-2) = 0 which is neither positive nor negative. Well, that completely discredits my 4th grade math book that said any number that is not negative IS positive. Therefore, zero is by default a positive number. However, the sum of two negative integers will always be negative. Adding a negative integer decreases the value of the result and given that both integers are negative implies that the sum will be negative. "Implies"? you say. Do you have no conviction? Cannot you say 'determines' when it is obvious? "not obvious"? you say, Then does that mean the sum of 2 negative numbers MIGHT not be negative? See, this is what happens when a 5th grade question is answered by someone with superior attitude.

-2 and 5

18 and -2

No. Consider 0 and 1. Or negative numbers, whose sum produces a smaller number.

-12, -2 and +2

29 cannot be the sum of two odd integers. The sum of two odd integers is always an even integer.

The sum of two negatives is always negative. Not sure what "energers" is, though!

-3 and -2

The sum of the first ten positive integers, i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and 10, is 55. The sum of the first ten negative integers, i.e. -1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-7,-8,-9, and -10 is -55. The sum of the first ten positive integers plus the sum of the first ten negative integers is 0.

Negative. -2 + -3 = -5 You might be confused with multiplication, where the product is positive

They are: -6-4-2 = -12

55 Basically the sum of al integers from 1 to n is Sn=(n²+n)/2 (Think why is this number always an integer!)

Integers are whole numbers, 1, 2, 3 etc. and can be positive or negative, -1, -2, -3 etc.

-8 and +3 I'm sorry I don't know the formula for the answer, I just guess & checked.
