The quotient of a negative integer and a positive integer is?

The quotient of a positive integer by a negative is always negative. Say this to yourself a couple times: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative) times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative) divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

What can you say about the product of a negative integer and a positive integer?

negative integer

Do integers have to have an opposite or just be a positive or negative number?

An integer is just a whole number, excluding zero. Any positive integer will always have an opposite just by placing a negative sign in front of the positive integer. You can also say that any negative whole number is an integer.

What can you say about the product of an integer and a positive integer?

-- The product is an integer. -- If the original two integers are both positive, then the product is positive. -- If the original two integers have different signs, then the product is negative.

Can any negative integer be greater than a positive integer?

Some sources say that the answer is no because a negative integer is less than zero and a positive integer is greater that zero. This answer is partially incorrect because if a negative integer is in an absolute value problem, it can potentially be greater that a positive integer. Example: |-11| > 7 because |-11|=11 because it is in an absolute value problem. Simplified, the problem is 11 > 7 So yes, in some cases a negative integer is greater that a positive integer.

Meaning of signed integer in c language?

What can you say about the sum of two positive integer?

Find the quotient. negative 3.4 divided by negative 8.5. can you help me?

Relax. It's not that bad. -- Forget about the negatives for a moment, and just divide 3.4 by 8.5 . -- Then say to yourself "When two numbers have the same sign, their quotient is positive."

Is consequence and impact same?

When you say consequences they are all positive. When you say impact, they may be positive or negative, such as positive impact or negative impact. But we don't use phrases like positive consequence or negative consequence. But there are surely positive and negative impacts! What do you say?

What can you say about the sum of two positive integers?

The sum will be a positive integer.It will be at least as large as double the smaller integer and at most as large as double the larger integer.

What can you say about the sign of the sum of integers with unlike signs?

Positive + positive = positive Negative + negative = negative Positive + negative will take the sign of the number with the greater absolute value.

Will the sum of two integers always be negative?

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.

What integer added to positive 15 equals positive 10 multiplied by negative 3?

To solve this set it up as an equation. Say x = some integer, so x + 15 = 10 times -3. x + 15 = -30, so x = -30 - 15 which means x = -45

Why is an integer sometimes less than its opposite?

An integer can be negative or positive, so if the integer is, let's say, -6. The opposite, or absolute value, of -6, is 6. So in this case, the opposite has more value than the actual integer. Does that answer the question? :D Best of luck, BrandonRocker98

What are some ways to get zero with a negative and a positive integer?

if you have for example -9 + 9 they cancel each other out and you get zero or for say you have -27 - -27 you would change it to addition so -27 + -27 then change the second number to a positive if it is a negative or a negative if it is a positive so it becomes -27+27 which works its way out to 0 so there it is love math it doesn't lie like people it is a phenomenon of truth

When its a positive plus a positive do you add or subtract?

No a positive plus a positive is not a negative its a positive. because um lets say 6+7 there is no negative number so its just like regular adding.

What is lets say -30 divided by -6 positive or negative?


When can you say that an algebraic expression is a polynomial?

A polynomial is a linear combination of non-negative integer powers of a variable. A linear combination means you can multiply the terms by constant numbers before summing them. The terms can consists of only positive integer powers of the variable or a constant.

A negative minus a positive equals?

well it depends what positive is being misused by the negative lets say it was, Example:-3 - +3 then that would equal 0 because when you minusing or plussing a negative with a positive the terms are backwards
