Step-by-step explanation:Consider the provided information.Integers: Integers are the set of whole number and the negatives of the natural numbers, i.e, … ,-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,...Rational number: A number
is said to be rational, if it is in the form
of p/q. Where p and q are integer and
denominator is not equal to 0.The decimal expansion of rational numbers may terminate or become periodic. Irrational
number: A number is irrational if it cannot
be expressed be expressed by dividing two
integers. The decimal expansion of
Irrational numbers are neither terminate nor
periodic.
Now consider the provided statement "Negative numbers are integers." The statement is incorrect as all negative numbers are not integers they might be rational number or irrational numbers.For example: -2.5 is a negative number but it is not an integer.
