# What is a positive integer?

Positive integers are all the whole numbers greater than zero: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...

where the notation ... means the list goes on forever.

Positive Integers are numbers that can be written without a fractional or decimal component.

You might want to think of the positive integers as the numbers you could count with your fingers if you use at least one finger and you can keep using as many fingers as you want over and over again.

The set of positive integers is the same as the set of natural numbers.

To help you understand what are and what are not positive integers, here are some examples.

• 100001 is a positive integer.
• The Square root of 2 is not since it is not a whole number.
• 0.01 is not since it is not a whole number.
• -2 is not since it is not greater than zero.
• zero (0) is not a positive integer since zero is not a positive number.

It is any counting number. You start counting at 1, and then count to 2, and so on. The numbers you use to count with are positive integers. It is any real number greater than zero which has no digits to the right of the decimal point.
It is an integer or a counting number that is greater than zero. Examples are 1, 5, 170864, 329678, 99999999, and 5896725358
A positive integer is a whole number from zero onwards with no fractions or decimals right of the number line.
Counting numbers greater than zero.
A positive integer, in mathematics, is one of the natural, counting numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.

The answer to that one must forever remain a mystery, since we can't find

a definition anywhere that tells what an "interger" is.

There is a math word that looks a lot like it, though. The word is integer .

Positive integers are the whole numbers that are bigger than zero.

When the absolute of the positive is greater than (or equal to) the absolute of the negative integer. If the integer subtracted is smaller than or equal to the first integer, then the answer is positive. Otherwise, if the integer subtracted is larger, then the answer is negative.  When they are added together and the absolute value of the positive integer is bigger than the absolute value of the negative integer or when the negative integer is subtracted from the positive integer. The sum of a positive integer and a negative integer is positive when the positive integer is greater. For example: 9 + (-5) = 4 In this case, the positive integer 9 is greater than the negative integer 5. Therefore, the sum is positive. Any positive integer plus any negative integer will always equal an integer. The results will be either a positive integer, a negative integer or zero.it depends which is bigger. if the positive integer is bigger the answer will be positive. and if the negative integer is bigger the answer will be negative. sum of positive integers will be a positive integer   Not necessarily. That only applies if the positive integer is greater than the negative integer in absolute value.An integer.  0.50 is a positive rational number but not a positive integer. Yes. The product of a negative integer and a positive integer is a negative integer. 4. The opposite of an integer is a positive if the integer is negative and negative it the integer is positive.   The number zero is not the smallest positive integer. The number one is the smallest positive integer. let x be any positive integer then x4 is the 4th power of that positive integer A decimal can be a positive integer or a negative integer or neither of the above. For example: 26.0 is a positive integer. -52.0 is a negative integer. 26.2 is not an integer at all. 0.0 is an integer, but is neither positive nor negative. Having an unsigned integer means that the integer is positive, and not negative; literally, the integer is unsigned and assumed to be positive. The unsigned integer 8 is positive-eight, not negative-eight. Let's use N to represent any number.N x N = NN x -N = -N-N x -N = NSo the rules are:A positive integer times a positive integer will be a positive integerA positive integer times a negative integer will be a negative integerA negative integer times a negative integer will be a positive integer. ###### Math and ArithmeticNumbers School SubjectsAlgebraHistory, Politics & Society Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
