Yes. Mixed numbers can be negative. -11/2 + 31/2 = 2

The sum of zero and a negative integer can never be zero - it will always be negative and nonzero. Although zero is also an integer, it is neither negative nor positive and cannot be the other integer used.

There is no answer because there are no mixed #.

They will be negative numbers as for example -5+(-7) = -12

-3

The sum of two numbers - whether they are negative or not, whether they are mixed numbers or not - is a single number. So they cannot be integers.

No. The sum of a positive integer and a negative integer has the same sign as the larger integer.

It will take the sign of the number with the higher absolute value.

The sum of two positive numbers is positive. The sum of two negative numbers is negative. The sum of a positive and negative number will depend on which number has a greater absolute value. 5 + (-4) = 1 5 + (-9) = -4

subtract the negative from the positive

It depends, if a number with positive integers is greater than the number with the negative integer therefore the sum will be in positive integer. And if the number with positive integer is less than the number with the number with negative integer then the sum will be in negative integer.

If the absolute value of the positive integer is greater than the absolute value of the negative integer, then the sum of the two will be positive.If the absolute value of the positive integer is less than the absolute value of the negative integer, then the sum will be negative.If the absolute values of the two integers are the same then the sum will be zero, which has neither a negative nor a positive sign.

When the absolute value of the positive integer is smaller than the absolute value of the negative one.

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.

The sum of three negative integers is always negative.

Yes. Mixed numbers can be negative. -11/2 + 31/2 = 2

If one of or both of the numbers are negative, then yes.
