## How do you explain integers?

An integer (pronounced IN-tuh-jer) is a whole number (not a fractional number) that can be positive, negative, or zero. Examples of integers are: -5, 1, 5, 8, 97, and 3,043. Examples of numbers that are not integers are: -1.43, 1 3/4, 3.14, . 09, and 5,643.1.

## What are the integers rules?

Multiplication and Division of Integers. RULE 1: The product of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative. RULE 2: The product of two positive integers is positive. RULE 3: The product of two negative integers is positive.

**What is an integer formula?**

Integers formulas are formulas for addition/subtraction and multiplication/division of integers.

**How do you explain integers to kids?**

Integers are positive numbers, negative numbers and zero. This means numbers like 0,1,2,3 as well as -1, -2, -3, are integers. Integers do not have any added parts such as decimals or fractions. Therefore, numbers with fractions like 3 1/2 or decimals like -7.5 are NOT integers.

### How do you explain integer rules?

RULE 1: The product of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative. RULE 2: The product of two positive integers is positive. RULE 3: The product of two negative integers is positive. RULE 1: The quotient of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative.

### What are integers for dummies?

Integers are whole numbers that are either greater than zero (positive) or less than zero (negative). For every positive integer, there’s a negative integer, called an additive inverse, that is an equal distance from zero.

**What are the 4 rules of integers?**

What are the Four Rules for Multiplying Integers?

- Rule 1: Positive × Positive = Positive.
- Rule 2: Positive × Negative = Negative.
- Rule 3: Negative × Positive = Negative.
- Rule 4: Negative × Negative = Positive.

## How do you calculate integers?

Count the number of integers in your list. In our example, there are five integers. Divide the sum of the integers by the number of integers. In our example, the sum of the integers is 24, and there are five integers total, so this is the formula: 24 / 5 = 4.8.

## How do you write numbers as integers?

Write your number on a piece of paper. You can write your integer in a variety of ways. For instance, write your integer in standard form (such as 63), expanded form (such as 100+50+2, which in standard form would be 152) or in written form (such as one thousand two hundred thirteen).

**How do you solve integers?**

1. Find the absolute value of each integer. 2. Subtract the smaller number from the larger number you get in Step 1. 3. The result from Step 2 takes the sign of the integer with the greater absolute value. We will use the above procedure to add integers with unlike signs in Examples…

**What numbers are not integers?**

Examples of numbers that are not integers are: -1.43, 1 3/4, 3.14, .09, and 5,643.1. The set of integers, denoted Z, is formally defined as follows: In mathematical equations, unknown or unspecified integers are represented by lowercase, italicized letters from the “late middle” of the alphabet.
