# What are the definitions of integers?

Integers are whole numbers that do not contain fractions or decimals

### Why does any two nonzero integers the product and the quotient have the same sign?

It follows from the definitions of the two operations.

### Is zero a natrul number?

There are two conflicting definitions of a "natural number": these are "The set of positive integers", or "The set of non-negative integers". According to the first definition, the list of positive integers does not include 0. However, according to the second definition, this does include zero.

### Are negative integers considered whole numbers?

It depends. Some authors consider "Whole Numbers" to be the positive integers, some consider them to be the non-negative integers, and some consider them to be all integers. For the first two definitions, numbers like -3 would not be considered "whole numbers". With the last definition, negative numbers like -3 would be considered a "whole number".

### Why isn't 0 a whole number?

Actually it is. Well, it depends what definition of "whole number" you use. Some definitions include only positive integers, some use it as a synonym of "integers". Therefore, due to this ambiguity, the phrase "whole numbers" would better be avoided in math. Rather, use words or phrases like "integers", "positive integers", or "non-negative integers", to convey the exact meaning, without ambiguity.

### Is there only one whole number that is not a natural number?

A "whole number" is called an integer < Lat. integer = whole. Natural numbers are sometimes defined as the positive integers and sometimes 0 is included in the definition. It depends on the situation whether or not 0 is considered a natural numbers (so there are two possible definitions of the natural numbers). Both definitions have pros and cons. None is "better" or "more correct" than the other. Your question, therefore, seems to center around… Read More

### Definitions of prime and composite numbers?

When referring to positive integers, prime means having only two factors and composite means having more than two.

### What is a set of natural numbers and zero?

The set of natural numbers plus zero is the set of all non-negative integers. Please note that the definition for the set of natural numbers is ambiguous. Some definitions include zero, while others exclude it.

### One or two definitions of integers?

An integer is what is more commonly known as a whole number. It may be positive, negative, or the number zero, but it must be whole. In some cases the definition of whole number will exclude the number zero, or even the set of negative numbers, but this is not as common as the more inclusive use of the term. Integers are the numbers people are most familiar with, and they serve a crucial role… Read More

### When the negative integers the positive integers and 0 are combined the integers are formed?

Negative integers, zero and the positive integers, together form the set of integers.

### A natural number but not a whole number?

On a maths assignment for school, the answer is probably "0," but the question is not well worded. Because mathematicians sometimes disagree on the definitions of "whole number" and "natural number" (specifically, whether "0" is included in one set or the other), it is probably best to use more descriptive terms like "positive integers" and "non-negative integers." Here are safer definitions to use: Integer: a member of the set {..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2… Read More

### Are the fractions 2436 and 1624 equivalent or not?

2436 and 1624 are integers, not fractions. And, as integers, they are unequal.

### How many definitions of SET are there in the Encarta Dictionary?

### Is it NOT possible to simplify expressions having variable exponents to represent integers?

If the exponents are associated with non-integers, or if the exponents are non-integers, it is very likely that the expression does not represent integers. If the exponents are associated with non-integers, or if the exponents are non-integers, it is very likely that the expression does not represent integers. If the exponents are associated with non-integers, or if the exponents are non-integers, it is very likely that the expression does not represent integers. If the exponents… Read More

### Why are dictionary definitions numbered are the different definitions ranked?

It's just a method used to separate the definitions instead of running them together. Confusion abounds when you do that. Some words have many definitions; I sure appreciate the separators (numbers) I can't think of how definitions can be ranked.

### How do you get definitions?

At least the following families: all integers; all positive integers; all odd integers; and all "square integers", that is, integers that are squares of other integers.

### What is the smallest 1-digit composite number?

Referring to only positive integers, the smallest composite number is 4 (2 x 2). A composite number is any number that is the product of two or more prime numbers. *Referring to all integers, it would be the negative number -9, (3 x -3), which is the also the arithmetically lowest one-digit number. However, under normal definitions, negative numbers are not considered prime or composite numbers.

Zero is an even number. There are several 'definitions' of an even number * it is a multiple of 2, * it is evenly divisible by 2, * it is surrounded on both sides by odd integers, * and it is the sum of an integer with itself The digit 0 is an even number because it is between two odd numbers which are -1 and 1
