p and q are negative numbers whenever we have two negative numbers multiplied by each other (product we get a positive number) \[-p \times -q = pq \]

integer means whole number like 1,2,3, ... {n} @Kitten_is_back

\[-p+-q = -n \] whenever we have two negative numbers added to each other the result will always be a negative number. |dw:1442776117459:dw|

@Kitten_is_back there's more than one answer answer choice D they never told you whether d is negative or positive so how would you know? also for C why would you think that C may not be correct?

@Kitten_is_back see my explanation for A you can actually test this out yourself by plugging numbers in for p and q. say p is -2 and q is -1 if you add them -2+-1 you'll get -3. D, how would you know the answer for this if they didn't tell you whether d is positive or negative. for C you are told that they are negative numbers but you don't know whether is more negative than Q let's test this out say if p-q is negative right? let's say if p is -3 and q is - 2 and then let's switch them in the second example \[-3-(-2) = -1\] \[(-2)-(-3) = \] what pattern do you see?

You can test these claims @Kitten_is_back by plugging in any whole numbers, integers, and seeing if the claim works
Photon336
  • Photon336
It must work in every case, if it doesn't then the claim made is wrong

Question for you could you tell me whether this is true or not? by plugging in numbers for -a and -b \[-a*-b = ? \]
Kitten_is_back
  • Kitten_is_back
true
Photon336
  • Photon336
good, the best way to test these claims is to see whether or not you can make them false. clearly if I put in any negative integer for both this will always be positive hopefully this helped
