No. Natural number {1, 2, 3, ...}.

No, Negative Nine or -9 is not a natural number since natural numbers mean only those numbers which start from 1 to infinity. No negative integers are included in this category of numerals.

No a negative plus a negative is not a positive answer. example. -5+-2=-7 but if you are subtracting a negative number from a negative, then the second negative number would become a positive. example. -5 - -2= -5+2= =-3

-5 is an integer.

No. -5 x -5 = -25 ... still a negative number.
