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.
