Some sources say that the answer is no because a negative integer is less than zero and a positive integer is greater that zero. This answer is partially incorrect because if a negative integer is in an absolute value problem, it can potentially be greater that a positive integer. Example: |-11| > 7 because |-11|=11 because it is in an absolute value problem. Simplified, the problem is 11 > 7 So yes, in some cases a negative integer is greater that a positive integer.

That depends on what the problem is.

Two consecutive integers means one is 1 more than the other integer. You can solve the problem by letting x represesnt one of the integers and x + 1 the next integer. Set up the equation and solve: x + (x + 1) = 45 (next simplify) 2x + 1 = 45 (next subtract 1 from each side of the equation) 2x = 44 (next divide both sides of the equation by 2 to solve for the first integer) x = 22 (this the first integer, the next is x + 1 which is 23) The two integers are 22 and 23 (22 + 23 + 45).

2x + 2 = 42 x = 20 20 and 22

It depends on the problem. An integer subtraction can be one number, take away another number.

The algorithms to solve an integer programming problem are either through heuristics (such as with ant colony optimization problems), branch and bound methods, or total unimodularity, which is often used in relaxing the integer bounds of the problem (however, this is usually not optimal or even feasible).

A fraction is not an integer.

You don't

To solve a problem, you need to have a plan. You need to identify the problem and then plan out the steps to solve it.

It is: 1.50p+2.50p+3p = 7p when simplified

Integer programming is a special kind of an optimising problem where the solution must be an integer.

When you analyze a problem you look it over which is what analyzing means. You look over the problem and then you solve it. When you solve a problem you solve it and you use certain steps and solve it but of course everyone has there ways to solve a problem but some people have ways to solve it by just analysing it. That is the difference.

112 is an integer, not a fraction.

There is no such thing as "solving integers". You can solve an equation, which means finding all the unknowns in that equation, but you can't solve an integer.

It depends on the problem: you may have to use integer programming rather than linear programming.

They try to solve the problem by?
