# the product of 10 integers is 1024.what is the greatest possible sum of these 10 intergers?

• 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.
