It can be greater than, equal or less than the original integer. There are three possible values for the second integer: It is positive, in which case the result will be less than the original integer, eg 5 - 2 = 3 and 3 < 5;It is zero, in which case the result will be the same as the original integer, eg 5 - 0 = 5 and 5 = 5;It is negative, in which case the result will be greater than the original integer, eg 5 - -2 = 7 and 7 > 5.
The integer is 7
An integer is a whole number, and the largest integer less than 9.5 would be 9.4
-7 The part of the question stated "negative odd integer" is not necessary. The only part needed is odd. The only numbers less than -5.7 are ALL negative and it would have to be a whole number to be odd so integer is not needed. So, you would be asking the same thing by asking "What is the greatest odd number less than -5.7?" * * * * * The answer is -7, not -9. There is no reason why the answer should be an integer unless the question specified that. It is perfectly correct that the question specifies that it is an integer. The question could have been seeking the greatest number less than -5.7 and the answer would have been that there cannot be such a number because because numbers are infinitely dense. * * * * * The greatest odd integer less than -5.7 is -7 The greatest odd number less than -5.7 is also -7 I was correct on my explanation.
"less than AND equals to" is an impossible condition.
Subtract any POSITIVE integer from -2, and you get an integer that is smaller.
By definition, a negative integer is any integer less than zero. Similarly, a positive integer is any integer greater than zero. It should be immediately obvious that an integer cannot be both less than and greater than zero. Therefore, a negative integer cannot be greater than a positive integer.
There are no positive integers less than any negative ones.
yes it is
A negative integer.
The largest integer equal to -100 is -100. The largest integer less than -100 is -101.
One is an integer, it is equal to one and less than two.
any negative number is an integer less than zero, such as -10, -4, et cetera.
The greatest positive even integer less than 12 is 10
They are members of the set of numbers of the form 7*k where k is a positive integer less than 29.
1, 3, 5, 7, 9
