Write a positive integer and a negative integer whose sum is a negative integer.

Answer :

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.
