Is the sum of two negative integers is a positive?

yes . same positive, different integers are a negative.


Is the sum of two integers alwasys a positive?

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


When do you get a sum of 0 in adding integers?

When the sum of all the positive integers in the sum is exactly matched (in magnitude) by the sum of all the negative integers.


The sum of two negative integers is a positive integer?

No, the sum of two negative integers is not a positive integer. For example, if you add -5 and -6 together the sum would be -11.


Is the sum of two integers with the same sign positive or negative?

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


What are two positive integers that have a sum of -18 and a product of 88?

Two positive integers cannot have a sum which is negative!


The sum of a positive integer and a negative integer is always sometimes or never zero?

If the integers are the same, then the sum is always zero.If the integers are different, then the sum is never zero.If there's no rule governing the choice of integers, then the sum is sometimes zero.By the way . . . we're talking about 'integers', not 'intergers'.


Is the sum of two integers positive negative or zero?

The sum of two positive integers is positive. The sum of two negative integers is negative. The sum of one positive integer and one negative integer has the same sign as the addend with the greater absolute value. If the absolute values of the two addends are equal, the sum is zero.


Do the sum of 2 positive integers equal zero?

The sum of two positive integers can never equal zero.


Is the sum of two integers is always positive?

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


Is it never always or sometimes the sum of two positive integers is zero?

The sum of two positive integers is never zero. The sum of two numbers a and b can only be zero if a=-b, or a=0 and b=0. Since 0 is not a positive integer, and a and b cannot both be positive integers if a=-b, then it is impossible for the sum of two positive integers to be zero. _______________________________________________________________ The above answer is correct. Here is another way to say it: An integer is any whole number including negative numbers, positive numbers and zero. However, a "positive integer" is a whole number greater than zero. The "sum of two positive integers" means you are adding two numbers greater than zero together. Therefore, the sum of two positive integers can never be a negative integer, and can never be zero. Example: 1 + 1 = 2



Is the sum of two negative integers always positive?

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


Is the sum of two integers always positive?

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

What is the sum of the first ten negative integer and the first ten positive integer?

The sum of the first ten positive integers, i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and 10, is 55. The sum of the first ten negative integers, i.e. -1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-7,-8,-9, and -10 is -55. The sum of the first ten positive integers plus the sum of the first ten negative integers is 0.


What are the three categories of integers?

The set of integers is divided into three subsets. One is the positive integers. Another is the negative integers. The last subset has one element -- zero. In sum, integers are composed of the positive integers, the negative integers, and zero.
