It will always be negative.

diffrence will always be positive except when it is zero but is you speak of substraction operation it can be positive negative or zero

There is no solution.Consecutive negative integers will always add up to a negative number. 110 is positive.

when you add two positive integers the answer is always positive when you add two negative integers the answer is positive when you add one negative and on positive integer, the answer is negative subtracting two negative numbers gets a negative answer subtracting two positive numbers- the answer depends subtracting a negative and positive number- the answer depends, the positive number would have to be bigger than the negative to achieve a negative number, and if the positive number is less, than the answer is still negative

No. Adding negative integers will result in an integer that is more negative.

When you add two negative integers, the answer is still negative.

I feel that two negatives are positive because you add* your two negative integers* together, you would be doing this: -+- (negative + negative) so the response is, is that if two integers where both negative, you would add, just like if there were two positives, you would add, but not if you have different signs. (positive+negative) you would subtract. Just as the same with negative + positive. [REVIEW: if the sign is the same, add, if the sign is different, you subtract.] *=you may not always add *=integers- a fancy word for numbers.

When adding negative integers, you subtract. (2+-1=1) When subtracting negative integers, you add. (2--3=5)

Add two positive integers and you ALWAYS have a positive integers. The positive integers are closed under addition.

+2 + -1= 1

That will depend on the two integers that you use. The result could be any of negative, zero or positive.

if they are both negative, add like they are positive numbers, but just add the negative sign.
