    1033 is the greatest possible sum

    1024 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 1033

    1024 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 = 1024

    1033 because

    The 10 integers giving the greatest possible total are:

    1024 x 1 x 1 x 1 x1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1

    1024 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 1033

    1024 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 = 1024,

    that's why Dan's answer of 1033 is correct as a sum.

    The "20" mentioned by some other people is the SMALLEST possible sum.

      -1024 × -1 × -1 × -1 × -1 × -1 × -1 × -1 × -1 × -1 = 1024 and -1024 + -1 + -1 + -1 + -1 + -1 + -1 + -1 + -1 + -1 = -1033. This is the SMALLEST possible sum.
