Well, a positive number minus a greater positive number equals a negative number. But it's impossible for a negative number to be subtracted from any number.

Because "minus a negative" is tha same as "plus a positive". So, a positive minus a negative is a positive plus a positive which is a positive.

The result of subtracting a negative number minus a negative number can be positive, or negative, depending on which of the numbers is larger. It can even be zero.

following multiplication integer rules and division rules, you should get: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)" a division problem is a multiplication problem in disguise
