What is the sign for multiplication and addition?

If you multiply two numbers, the result will be positive, if both factors are positive, or if both are negative. Multiplying a positive number by a negative number, or a negative number by a positive number, results in a negative result.For addition, if you add two positive numbers, the result is positive. If you add two negative numbers, the result is negative. If you add a positive and a negative number, the result depends on which of the numbers has the greater absolute value. For example, if the positive number has the greater absolute value (distance from zero), the result will be positive.If you multiply two numbers, the result will be positive, if both factors are positive, or if both are negative.

Do whole numbers and intgers have no numbers in common?

Whole numbers are positive numbers from zero to infinity. Integers are both positive and negative numbers. So whole numbers and integers have positive numbers in common, but only integers have negative numbers. Both have zero, and both have no fractions.


When adding integers and both numbers are negative is the answer positive?

No, it is not.
