Positive integers are the counting numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on) greater than zero. Negative integers are their counterparts (-1, -2, -3, -4, -5 and so on) less than zero.

Absolute values are never negative. The opposite, or negative, or additive inverse, of a negative number is the number's absolute value; a non-negative number is its own absolute value. The absolute values of 7 and -5, are, respectively, 7 and 5.

The sum of a positive integer and a negative integer is positive when the positive integer is greater. For example: 9 + (-5) = 4 In this case, the positive integer 9 is greater than the negative integer 5. Therefore, the sum is positive.

It could be either positive or negative, depending on which integer has a greater absolute value. 5 + (-3) = 2 5 + (-9) = -4

It could be either positive or negative, depending on which integer has a greater absolute value. 5 + (-3) = 2 5 + (-9) = -4

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

In order of greatness they are: -1 -3 -5 and -7

It isn't always negative. ... for example: -5 + 12 = 7 (a positive number) -5 + 2 = -3 (a negative number) -5 + 5 = 0 (neither negative nor positive) If the negative number has greater magnitude than the positive number, the sum will be negative If the positive number has greater magnitude than the negative number, the sum will be positive If the negative and positive numbers have the same magnitude, the sum will be zero.

-1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 and -7 are all greater than -8

No, -3 + 8 = 5.
