    Post integers

    Some books say that integers are whole numbers.

    Some books say that integers are the combination of negative integers and whole numbers.

    So how is that?

    Integers

    Integer is the sum or difference of any 2 natural numbers (This means integers will not have any decimals or fractions in it)
    e.g. 5 - 6 = (-1)
    10 - 2 = 8
    2 + 5 = 7

    So in this case 8, 7 and (-1) are both examples of integers.

    Hope this help.
