• Yes, ﻿what is it?...well, an integer is a whole number that can be positive,negative,or zero.Yes, there are different types of integers also
• Hi Zoe I had a question for you.﻿﻿..What is an integer is and are there different types of integers that I should know?
• Now there is positive and negative integers, these are called...correct!..... A positive is greater than zero. A negative is less than zero.
• Oh I remember, these are called opposites, right?
• Whole numbers less than zeros are called negative integers. The integers zero is nor positive or negative, and has no sign.
• Oh now I am starting to understand it more. Two integers are opposites if they are each the same distance away from zero, but on opposites sides of the number line. Also positive integers can be written with or without a sign.
• The absolute value of an integer is the numerical value without regard to whether the sign is negative or positive.
• Correct! But you forgot one thing, on a number line it is the distance between the number and zero.
• If we compare number with different signs,  then negative numbers is less than positive.  If numbers are both positive then we need to compare the whole numbers. ﻿
• So the distance between two points on a coordinate plane would be how ever far apart the points are form the axis and how ever many units is from the axis on both side to get the distances.﻿
• ﻿But don't forget!  If both numbers are negative then we compare numbers without signs.  The bigger positive number, the smaller negative.
• The ﻿ End
