What are the basic operations you can do with an integer?
Integer operations are calculations using positive and negative whole numbers. Common operations include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Integer operations can help you solve math problems involving integers.
Addition: adding two or more numbers together to get a sum Subtraction: taking one number away from another number to get a difference Multiplication: repeated addition of the same number to get a product
The first recorded use of the term 'integer' dates back to 1643 by the mathematician Pierre de Fermat. Integer operations can be used to calculate the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two or more numbers. Multiplying two integers can produce a result that is either positive, negative, or zero.
