Write a pair of integers whose product is
–12 and there lies seven integers between them (excluding the given integers).

Answer :

There are number of integer pairs whose product equals -12.

These are: (1, -12), (2, -6), (3, -4), (-3, 4), (-2, 6) and (-1, 12)


But (2, -6) and (-6, 2) are ideal pairs whose products equals to -12 and there lies seven integers between them.


Observe the number line:


For (-6, 2):



For (-2, 6):



While other pairs do not satisfy the criteria.


Thus, the solutions are (-6, 2) and (-2, 6).
