    False. Counterexample: 1 and -1. Or did you mean two positive integers?

    An integer is a whole number, (no fractional part); it can be positive, negative or zero.

    It is a subset of real numbers than can have fractional parts or decimal digits or be irrational.

    A sum of any two integers of same magnitude but opposite sign can be zero.

    1 + (-1) = 0

    0 + 0 = 0

    All posts agree – it was false.

    False because integers are whole numbers and as for example the sum of 3+(-3) = 0

    False.

    The sum of two integers can be zero.

    An integer (from the Latin integer meaning "whole") is a number that can be written without a fractional component. For example, 21, 4, 0, and −2048 are integers, while 9.75, 5 ⁄2, and √2 are not.

    False. An integer is a whole number (i.e -5, 3, -3454). The sum of any integer and its opposite is equal to zero (i.e -5+5=0).

    obviously false if YOU know about ' additive inverses'...for every real A there is a real number B such that A + B = 0.....A & B are said to be 'additive inverses' of each other

    False

    Integers can be either positive or negative. For example: 3+(-3)=0

    Although it'll have to be the same number, it still works. So this makes the statement false

    false

    4 + -4 = 0
