To find the sum of two integers with different signs, you simply combine them, and give the result the sign of the larger integer. For example, you have two integers: -9 and +5. You combine them, that is the +5 cancels out 5 of the -9, leaving -4.

-- Ignore the signs for a moment. -- Find the difference of the two integers. -- Give it the sign of whichever integer is the bigger number.

-26 and 1

1 and -26 is one possible answer.

- Always, if the two integers are both positive. - Sometimes, if the two integers have different signs. - Never, if the two integers are both negative.

Yes. The sign of the sum is the same as the sign of the larger interger integer.

find three consecutive integers whose sum is - 93

if the 2 signs are negative, than the sum is negative. if the 2 signs are positive, than the sum is positive.

The sum will take on the sign of whatever number is greater, regardless of sign. -36 + 43 will be positive. 36 + -43 will be negative.

Depends on how large each integer is. +1-2 or +2-1. Different signs depending on the size of the integers.

The sum of the squares of two consecutive positive even integers is 340. Find the integers.

Choose any integer. Let's call it "n". Then subtract 8 - n, to get the other integer. (For the two integers to have different signs, one of the integers must be greater than 8, the other will be negative.)
