No . Since an integer can be a negative number, it's possible for the sum of two integers to be negative. The statement is: "Their sum is always an integer." Whether the sum is negative or positive depends on the two original integers. - Always, if the two integers are both positive. - Sometimes, if the two integers have different signs. - Never, if the two integers are both negative. 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'.
