Zero is Greater than every negative integer

All numbers have common factors greater than zero.

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.

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.
