Write a positive integer and a negative integer whose sum is a negative integer.
There are number of solutions possible for this question.
Take any positive integer = 6 (say)
Now, take any negative integer, but to make sure it is numerically greater than the positive integer.
⇒ Negative integer = -9 (say)
Add these numbers,
Sum = 6 + (-9)
⇒ Sum = 6 – 9 [plus & minus is equal to minus in addition, multiplication and division]
⇒ Sum = -3
-3 is a negative integer due to the negative sign before the number 3.
Thus, 6 and -9 are such integers.
