What Are Positive and Negative Numbers?
The whole numbers (0, 1, 2, 3…), together with their opposites (0, -1, -2, -3…), are called integers. The counting numbers (1, 2, 3…) are positive integers and are sometimes represented by the symbols +1, +2, +3… The numbers -1, -2, -3… are negative integers. The number 0 is neither positive nor negative. When two negative numbers are multiplied, the result is a positive integer.
