Will the sum of two integers always be negative?

No. For example, 2 + 3 = 5 which is positive, and 2 + (-2) = 0 which is neither positive nor negative. Well, that completely discredits my 4th grade math book that said any number that is not negative IS positive. Therefore, zero is by default a positive number. However, the sum of two negative integers will always be negative. Adding a negative integer decreases the value of the result and given that both integers are negative implies that the sum will be negative. "Implies"? you say. Do you have no conviction? Cannot you say 'determines' when it is obvious? "not obvious"? you say, Then does that mean the sum of 2 negative numbers MIGHT not be negative? See, this is what happens when a 5th grade question is answered by someone with superior attitude.

How do the rules for multiplying integers compare to the rules for dividing integers?

The product of two positive integers or two negative integers is positive.The product of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative.The quotient of two positive integers or two negative integers is positive.The quotient of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative.You multiply or divide integers just as you do whole numbers, except you must keep track of the signs. To multiply or divide signed integers, always multiply or divide the absolute values and use these rules to determine the sign of the answer.When you multiply two integers with the same signs, the result is always positive. Just multiply the absolute values and make the answer positive.Positive x positive = positiveNegative x negative = positiveWhen you multiply two integers with different signs, the result is always negative. Just multiply the absolute values and make the answer negative.Positive x negative = negativeNegative x positive = negativeWhen you divide two integers with the same sign, the result is always positive. Just divide the absolute values and make the answer positive.Positive ÷ positive = positiveNegative ÷ negative = positiveWhen you divide two integers with different signs, the result is always negative. Just divide the absolute values and make the answer negative.Positive ÷ negative = negativeNegative ÷ positive = negativeExamples1.2.3.4. LOVE YOU :)
