Multiplying and dividing two negatives does equal a positive. Adding two negatives equals a negative, but subtracting two negatives may or may not equal a positive. Ex. -2 * -4 = 8 -10/-2 = 5 -2+ -4 = -6 -4- -2 = -2 -2- -4 = 2
No 2 negatives do not equal a positive because for example. : -2 + -2 = -4. You can see that when you add these 2 negative numbers right here they equal to another negative number.
When multiplied. Such as -2*-2=4
If you mean negative numerator and negative denominator then the answer is Yes.
Yes, when a positive is divided by a negative, it is negative. ex: 4/-2 would equal -2. It takes two negatives to make a positive in math when you are multiplying or dividing.
if the first negative is samller than the second its positive but if the first one is a larger number than the second then its a positive
yes because it is the same as adding positive (it is easier to use a numberline)
The product of 2 (or more) positives is positive. The product of 2 negatives is positive. So product of 6 negatives = 3*(product of two negatives) = product of 3 positives = positive. So overall sign is positive.
negative the answer is positive!!
It could equal both a negagtive number or a positive number. To get a definite positive or negative you times or divide. Well in addition and subtraction negative plus a negative equals a bigger negative. Kinda like -4+-4 =-8, but in multiplication and division 2 negatives equal a positive. -2 times-2 =positive 4.
Adding negatives? You get a negative. But if you multiply/divide 2 negatives, that's a positive.
yes they do. For example, 2 - -2 = 4 or +4. But if you mean does -2 + -2 = 0 or 4, then no. -2 + -2 = -4.
a positive number..... 2 negatives=positive
two negatives makes a positive, meaning you add. i.e. 2 - -2 = 2+2 = 4
When you multiply two negatives the negatives cancel one and other out.
2 negatives make a positive
because you can get a positive number as EITHER a product of 2 positive numbers OR the product of the negatives of the SAME 2 numbers; the product of 2 negative numbers is positive.
On the number line if you subtract a positive you move left. If you add a positive you move right. If add a negative you move left. If you subtract a negative you move right. That is just how I learned it. I don't know a wordy explanation.
Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.
2 negatives equal a positive or if you multiply a negative by a positive it is larger negative if you multiply a negative and a negative it become positive because doing something negative times is getting bigger
a positive... for example: -5x-5=25
I think you're mixed up with the multiplication rules. But I know a much easier trick for multiplication rule. You count the number of negatives there are in the operation. If the number of negatives is an even number than the answer is positive. If there is an odd amount then the answer is negative. his only works for multiplication and division. You won't know if the answer os a positive plus a negative is until you determine the numbers. For example: 4+(-2)=2 but 2+(-4)=-2 If the positive number is bigger than the negative number (not counting the negative sign) than yes, the answer is positive. If the negative is bigger than your answer is negative. That'll be...1 trust point now.
