Integers is the set of numbers containing whole numbers and their opposites.
Integers can either be:
In a number line, positive integers are located at the right side of zero (0) while the negative integers are located at the left side of zero (0).
A negative integer is an integer that is less than zero. In the number line, these integers are located at the left side of zero (0).
Negative integers are the opposite of positive integers. For example, -2 is the opposite of 2. Even though both integers have the same number, they have different signs.
In real-life application, negative integers are used as an opposite in relation to a certain reference.
