### Featured Integer Vocabulary Words On These Puzzles

**Absolute Value** – The absolute value of an integer is the distance between the number and zero on the number line, always resulting in a non-negative value. It disregards the sign of the integer and provides a measure of its magnitude.

**Additive Inverse** – The additive inverse of an integer is the number that, when added to the original integer, results in zero. For any integer a, its additive inverse is denoted as -a, such that a + (-a) = 0.

**Digit** – A digit is a numerical symbol used to represent numbers in positional numeral systems. In the base-10 system, digits range from 0 to 9, and they are combined to form numbers. For instance, in the number 548, 5, 4, and 8 are digits.

**Even Number** – An even number is an integer that is divisible by 2, leaving no remainder. It is represented as 2n, where n is an integer. For example, 4, -6, and 20 are all even numbers.

**Integer** – An integer is a whole number that can be either positive, negative, or zero, without any fractional or decimal parts. Integers are fundamental in mathematics and are used to represent quantities such as counts or positions on the number line.

**Negative Number** – A negative number is an integer that is less than zero, representing a deficit or decrease in quantity. It is denoted with a minus sign (-) preceding the numerical value, indicating a direction opposite to positive numbers.

**Number Line** – A number line is a straight line with evenly spaced points representing integers and their corresponding positions. It provides a visual representation of the order and magnitude of numbers, allowing for easy understanding of arithmetic operations and relationships between integers.

**Odd Number** – An odd number is an integer that is not divisible by 2, leaving a remainder of 1 when divided by 2. It is represented as 2n + 1 or 2n – 1, where n is an integer. For example, 3, -5, and 11 are all odd numbers.

**Opposite** – The opposite of an integer is its additive inverse, i.e., the number that, when added to it, yields zero. For instance, the opposite of 5 is -5, and the opposite of -7 is 7.

**Ordering** – Ordering integers refers to arranging them in ascending or descending order based on their numerical value. It helps in comparing integers and understanding their relative positions on the number line.

**Positive Number** – A positive number is an integer that is greater than zero, representing a surplus or increase in quantity. It is denoted without a sign or with a plus sign (+) preceding the numerical value.

**Product** – In arithmetic, the product of two integers is the result of their multiplication operation. For example, the product of 3 and 4 is 12, denoted as 3 × 4 = 12.

**Quotient** – In arithmetic, the quotient of two integers is the result of their division operation. It represents how many times one number can be divided by another. For example, the quotient of 10 divided by 2 is 5, denoted as 10/2 = 5.

**Rational Number** – A rational number is a number that can be expressed as the quotient of two integers, where the denominator is not zero. It includes integers, fractions, and terminating or repeating decimals, serving as a fundamental concept in mathematics.

**Reciprocal** – The reciprocal of a non-zero integer a is the number 1/a or -1/a, representing the multiplicative inverse of the original integer. For example, the reciprocal of 2 is 1/2 or -1/2.

**Sum** – In arithmetic, the sum of two integers is the result of their addition operation. It represents the total quantity obtained by combining the two numbers. For example, the sum of 7 and -3 is 4, denoted as 7 + (-3) = 4.

**Term** – In algebra, a term is a component of an algebraic expression separated by addition or subtraction operators. It may consist of a variable, a coefficient, and/or constants. For example, in the expression 3x + 2, 3x and 2 are terms.

**Truncate** – To truncate a number means to shorten it by dropping one or more digits from the right side of the decimal point without rounding. It is a method used to simplify or approximate numerical values, especially in calculations involving decimals.

**Unit** – A unit in mathematics refers to a fixed quantity used as a standard of measurement. In the context of integers, the unit refers to the smallest positive integer value, which is 1.

**Whole Number** – A whole number is a non-negative integer, including zero, that does not have any fractional or decimal parts. Whole numbers serve as fundamental building blocks in mathematics and arithmetic operations.

**Zero Pair** – In integer arithmetic, a zero pair refers to a pair of integers whose sum equals zero. For example, the pair (-3, 3) forms a zero pair because (-3) + 3 = 0.

**Zero Property of Multiplication** – The zero property of multiplication states that the product of any integer and zero is always zero. It is a fundamental property in arithmetic and algebra and can be expressed as a × 0 = 0 for any integer a.

**Zero Property of Addition** – The zero property of addition states that the sum of any integer and zero is always equal to the original integer. It is a fundamental property in arithmetic and algebra and can be expressed as a + 0 = a for any integer a.

**Zero** – Zero is the integer that represents the absence of quantity or the neutral element in arithmetic operations such as addition and multiplication. It is neither positive nor negative and serves as a reference point on the number line.

**Zigzag Rule** – The zigzag rule is a method used to determine the sign of the product or quotient of two integers based on their signs. If the signs are the same, the result is positive; if the signs are different, the result is negative.
