A negative + a negative + a negative equals a negative. Adding a negative number is equal to subtracting a positive number. For example: -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-2)-2-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-4)-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-6)

Positive 3 plus negative 5 minus negative 2 minus positive 4 is equal to -4.

Nope. Negative 4 plus 6 equals 2. You can see this more easily by rearranging the sum to be 6 - 4 = 2.

It could equal both a negagtive number or a positive number. To get a definite positive or negative you times or divide.
