Best Answer

Because an integer can only go into itself once.

For example: 10/10 is 1. The first 10 is multiplied by 1 to equal 10.

0 cannot be divided

Depends if you like bananas... JK, no the degree cant be negative because if it was then the trioxians of the neutrino would implode to a sub zero quantum ordinate and the multiverse would incenerate itself and turn into a meca black hole...and that is why we dont want monomials to have a negative degree.

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

The absolute value is just the amount from 0 to itself, example: -42 is 42 away from zero. so i wouldn't say it was a positive, it is just the value.

you cant solve that YOU FREAK!

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.

you cant make them it is any number that can not be divided by anything except itself.

no it cant because 37 is a prime number and can only be divided by 1 and itself

no, you cant. it only works on string

No. The integers are {..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. Basically, all numbers without fractions or decimals, so 0.32 is not an integer.

you cant get the square root of a negative number. nothing times itself would equal a negative number. if you have √-25 then its not possible. If you have -√25 then you take the square root of 25 and make it negative, so then it would be -5

No it cant

Indivisible?

true because if it is an absolute integer it cant be negative and 0 is nor a negative number or positive. so it would always be positive. Example- l-7l its absolute value would be 7, or l4l its absolute value would be 4.
