There is no largest positive or smallest negative integer.

Assume there was “a largest.” Then you could add 1 to it, making it larger. Same logic applies for negative numbers. 1 can always be subtracted.

Numbers continue without bound positively and negatively.

In math, Integers do not end, so Negative Infinity would be the smallest and Infinity would be the largest.

In computer programming, however, Integers have specific sizes and limitations.

For example, in the language C#…

The smallest signed integer is:

-2,147,483,648

and the largest signed Integer is:

2,147,483,647

The smallest unsigned Integer is:

0

and the largest unsigned Integer is:

4,294,967,295

The largest negative Integer is always -1.

Good luck!

There is no “largest positive number” because numbers go to infinity. The “largest negative integer” is -1. Mathematicians dont talk about numbers being larger than other numbers, but use “greater” instead.

Positive infinity is the largest positive integer, and negative infinity is the largest negative integer.

Integers do not end. They continue…. (wait for it)…. infinitely.

Ditto for negative integers, although it should be noted that the “largest” negative integer would be -1.

+ or – infinity…the symbol looks like a sideways 8…

Don’t be afraid of the word integer…it just means number…

There is no such thing….for either, as numbers are infinite.
