When comparing two integers the integer with the greater absolute value is always the greater integer?

No.A positive integer is always larger than a negative integer. In the case of two negative integers, the integer with the larger absolute value is actually smaller.


Is the difference of two negative integers always positive?

If difference is taken to mean the first number minus the second then the answer can be positive or negative (or zero if the two numbers are the same). For example: the difference between -5 and -3 is -2 while the difference between -3 and -5 is +2.



What is the difference between one number and the next on a number line?

If you are talking about integers on the number line, the answer is 1. If you are talking about real numbers, then there is always a real number between every other two, so you can't really talk about the difference.

Multiplying integers always results in an integer. Dividing integers can sometimes not result in an integer.
