No. Adding negative numbers will make them more negative.

when you have a negative times a negative it will equal a positive but when you have a negative times a positive it will equal a negative no matter what!

No. Two negative integers added together will never equal a positive integer. It is the product of two negative integers that is positive.

Multiplying and dividing integers is real easy. All you have to do is do regular dividing and multiplying keeping in mind these simple rules: RULES: 1: When multiplying or dividing integers, when the numbers are a positive, positive they equal a positive. When the numbers are negative, negative they equal a positive. In other words, same signs equal positive. 2: This rule is very similar to the rule above. The only change is that when the signs are different, they equal a negative. ( negative, positive= negative, positive, negative= negative.) Please correct me if I'm wrong. Multiply integers- my notes from class positive x positive= positive positive x negative= negative negative x negative= positive Divide integers- again my notes from class positive divided by a positive= positive negative divided by a negative= positive negative divided by a positive= negative Dividing integers are simple if the number has a different sign than the other it is always negative but if they have the same sign its always positive ex. -20/5=-4 ex. -20/-4=-5

Only when you divide or multiply.

There are no two consecutive integers, negative or positive, whose product is 440.

If I'm not mistaken its 2 of the same type of integer ( negative negative/positive positive ) equal the same type of integer EX: -1 - (-1)= -1 and if the integers are opposite ( positive negative/negative positive ) then its the sign of the higher number EX: -2 - 6 = 4

Negative. Adding a negative is the same as subtracting a positive. -2 + -3= -2 - 3= -5, not 1

The sum of two positive integers is positive. The sum of two negative integers is negative. The sum of one positive integer and one negative integer has the same sign as the addend with the greater absolute value. If the absolute values of the two addends are equal, the sum is zero.

Negative plus Negative would equal positive in Maths. like this: -7 + -8 = 1 Because you're adding a minus It Will Not Equal a Positive it will Equal a Negative. -7+-8= -15. Because you are adding a negative to another negative. If the problem was -7+8= 1. Because you are taking seven out of that eight. If It were to be multiplication than a negative TIMES a negative would have been a positive(-8 x -7=56). And a negative TIMES a positive would be a negative (-8 x 7=-56).

All negative integers, when multiplied by a positive integer, or vice versa, will result in a negative integer. I. E. 5*-5=-25

For negatives, two negatives equal a positive & all goes for positive
