Proof: N^{2} > N rules out all the others.
The same proof shows that 1 is also the largest negative integer.LCKurtz said:Proof: N^{2} > N rules out all the others.
This statement means that 1 is the highest whole number that is considered a positive integer. In other words, it is the largest number that can be counted.
No, there are infinitely many positive integers. However, 1 is considered the smallest positive integer.
Since 1 is the smallest positive integer, it is also the largest. This is because there are no other positive integers that come before 1.
The significance of 1 being the largest positive integer is that it serves as the starting point for counting and is the basis for the entire number system.
No, 1 is not a negative integer as it is greater than 0. Negative integers are represented by numbers less than 0.
