    Positive and Negative Integers

    Hello to all!
    Positive integers are all the whole numbers greater than zero: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... . Negative integers are all the opposites of these whole numbers: -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, . We do not consider zero to be a positive or negative number. For each positive integer, there is a negative integer, and these integers are called opposites. For example, -3 is the opposite of 3, -21 is the opposite of 21, and 8 is the opposite of -8. If an integer is greater than zero, we say that its sign is positive. If an integer is less than zero, we say that its sign is negative.
    I hope this can help to students who have some problems on understanding about integer #s..

    If it weren't for the add for students.net. This subforum isn't for advertising! If you had actually looked you would've seen the correct subforum.
