Yes, by definition, the sum of two integers is always an integer. Likewise, the product and difference of two integers is always an integer.

Yes the sum of two integers will always be an integer.

diffrence will always be positive except when it is zero but is you speak of substraction operation it can be positive negative or zero

No.A positive integer is always larger than a negative integer. In the case of two negative integers, the integer with the larger absolute value is actually smaller.

One and two are integers but they are not the same!

Yes, the product of 2 integers are always an integers. ex. -2*3=-6

Here are a few familiar quotients of integers:1/22/33/47/10The quotient of two integers is seldom an integer.

No . Since an integer can be a negative number, it's possible for the sum of two integers to be negative.

Not necessarily.The difference between -3 and -5 is 2 which not less than either of the integers.

1. Take the absolute values of those two integers.2. Find the difference.3. Determine which integer is the largest. If that integer is positive, then the answer is positive. If that integer is negative, then the answer is negative.

The statement is: "Their sum is always an integer." Whether the sum is negative or positive depends on the two original integers.

* The quotient of two positive integers or two negative integers is positive. * The quotient of a positive integer and a negetive integer is negetive.

No. Since an integer can be a negative number, it's possible for the sum of two integers to be negative.

The difference depends on the integers. If the first integer is greater than the second then difference is positive. If the first integer is less than the second then difference is negative. For example 6-4 = +2; 4-6 = -2

No, the square root of an integer will not always be an integer. It may or may not be. The square root of nine is three, both of which are integers. The square root of two is not an integer. In fact, it is not even a rational number.

When expressed as a ratio of two integers (not intergers!), the simplest form for the integer but not others, has 1 as the denominator.

no. eg. -2 + -9 =-11 &lt;&lt;this is negative if you were to multiply two negative integers, you would get a positive integer.

Because an integer is a whole number and the sum of any two or more whole numbers is always a whole number.

The product of any two or more integers is an integer.

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

Always. "Whole number" and "integer" are two different names for the same thing.

To add two integers with unlike signs: -- Find the difference between their sizes, ignoring their signs. -- Give the difference the sign of the integer with the larger size.
