*.*

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

# What is the largest positive integer?

The set of positive integers is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...}. Because the values approach positive infinity there is no largest positive integer..
If you pick any positive integer, you can always create a larger one by simply adding 1 to it. So there can be no largest positive integer.

# What is the positive integer what is a negative integer?

Positive integers are the counting numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on) greater than zero. Negative integers are their counterparts (-1, -2, -3, -4, -5 and so on) less than zero.

# Sum of a positive and a negative integer is positive?

Not necessarily. It depends on which number has a greater absolute value. 5 + (-4) = 1 5 + (-9) = -4

# What is a positive integer a negative integer?

Start at 0 and go in both the negative and positive directions. So in the positive one we have 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,19, and keep going forever. Those are the non-negative integers. If we get rid of the o and leave all the others, we have the positive integers..
Now take each positive integer, 1,2,3,…4 etc and make it a negative number, so we have -1,-2,-3, etc, those are the negative integers. Or we can start at -1 and count toward negative infinity by going -1, -2,-3, -4, .... forever and those are the negative integers. ( Full Answer )

# What can you say about positive integers and negative integers?

Positive numbers are any numbers greater than zero. For example: 1, 2.9, 3.14159, 40000, and 0.0005. Negative numbers are any number less than zero. For Example: -1, -2.9, -3.14159, -40000, and -0.0005. For each positive number, there is a negative number that is its opposite. We write t…he opposite of a positive number with a negative or minus sign in front of the number, and call these numbers negative numbers. We do not consider zero to be a positive or negative number. The sum of any number and its (negative) opposite is 0. The sign of a number refers to whether the number is positive or negative. For example: The sign of -3.2 is negative, and the sign of 442 is positive. We may also write positive and negative numbers as fractions or mixed numbers. ( Full Answer )
