Study Notes

Integers

Definition

  • An integer is a whole number, either positive, negative, or zero, without a fractional part.
  • Examples: ..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...

Properties

  • Closure: The sum, difference, product, and quotient (except division by zero) of two integers is always an integer.
  • Commutative Property: The order of integers in an operation does not change the result.
  • Associative Property: The order in which integers are grouped in an operation does not change the result.
  • Distributive Property: The multiplication of an integer over the sum of two integers is equal to the sum of their individual products.

Operations

  • Addition: The sum of two integers is always an integer.
  • Subtraction: The difference of two integers is always an integer.
  • Multiplication: The product of two integers is always an integer.
  • Division: The quotient of two integers is not always an integer, but it can be expressed as an integer or a decimal.

Types of Integers

  • Even Integers: divisible by 2, e.g., ..., -4, -2, 0, 2, 4, ...
  • Odd Integers: not divisible by 2, e.g., ..., -3, -1, 1, 3, 5, ...
  • Prime Integers: only divisible by 1 and themselves, e.g., 2, 3, 5, 7, ...

Integers

Definition and Examples

  • An integer is a whole number with no fractional part, which can be positive, negative, or zero.
  • Examples of integers include ..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...

Properties of Integers

Closure

  • The quotient of two integers is an integer except for division by zero.

Commutative Property

  • The order of integers in an operation does not change the result.

Associative Property

  • The order in which integers are grouped in an operation does not change the result.

Distributive Property

  • The multiplication of an integer over the sum of two integers is equal to the sum of their individual products.

Operations with Integers

  • The sum of two integers is always an integer.
