# Integer Divisor Results/Integer Divides its Absolute Value

## Theorem

Let $n \in \Z$ be an integer.

Then:

 $\ds n$ $\divides$ $\ds \size n$ $\ds \size n$ $\divides$ $\ds n$

where:

$\size n$ is the absolute value of $n$
$\divides$ denotes divisibility.

## Proof

Let $n > 0$.

Then $\size n = n$ and Integer Divides Itself applies.

Let $n = 0$.

Then Integer Divides Itself holds again.

Let $n < 0$.

Then $\size n = -n$ and Integer Divides its Negative applies.
