4. The opposite of an integer is a positive if the integer is negative and negative it the integer is positive.

If by "opposite" you mean its additive inverse, the answer is 0. If by "opposite" you mean its multiplicative inverse, for the number x, it will be (x+1/x).

yes. the opposite of a positive integer is the same except negative and vice versa ( ex: the opposite integer of -6 is 6. if you multiply them, it equals zero)

the quotient of an integer and its opposite is never negative.

a negative integer or a fraction (as in 1/integer) or a negative fraction (as in -1/integer).

If you mean each side of 9 then the integers or whole numbers are 8 and 10

An integer can be negative or positive, so if the integer is, let's say, -6. The opposite, or absolute value, of -6, is 6. So in this case, the opposite has more value than the actual integer. Does that answer the question? :D Best of luck, BrandonRocker98

An example of an integer is... - 4 is the opposite of 4, 21 is the opposite of - 21.

The "opposite" of 15 would be its additive inverse, or -15.

Yes, when a nonzero integer is divided by it's opposite it's value equals -1

Since the answer is meant to be an integer it seems reasonable to assume that the question is about the additive opposite. That being the case, the answer is -42.

An integer is just a whole number, excluding zero. Any positive integer will always have an opposite just by placing a negative sign in front of the positive integer. You can also say that any negative whole number is an integer.

The additive opposite of the additive opposite is the number itself. The multiplicative opposite of the multiplicative opposite is the number itself, unless the number was 0, in which case the first opposite is not defined.

I think you mean integer - whole, complete.
