Types of Integers
Integers are of two types: positive and negative. On a number line or coordinate graph, positive integers are to the right of or above the zero point and negative integers are to the left or below.
Practical Uses of Integers
Integers are used in computer programming and coding, where things must be on or off, that is, 1 or 0. We call this “binary” because everything a computer does can be turned into a sequence of ones and zeroes.
