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
