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.

using basic math principles, you can't find the square root of a negative number because in order for a number to be a square root, you have to multiply it by itself to get your radical. since a negative times a negative and a positive times a positive are both positive, it is impossible to find the square root of a negative number

Why does a positive number divided by a negative number equal a negative number instead of infinity?

If you think about it, the division simbol means how many times a number can go into another number, so a positive number, like 5 goes into a negative number, like -25, -5 times, because the -5 is less than 1, and 5 cant go into anything less than one even once, so it goes in a negative amount of times. I'm not sure why a positive number divided by a negative number would be infinity.
