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.
it equals a positive.
no it equals a positive
Positive 3 plus negative 5 minus negative 2 minus positive 4 is equal to -4.
A negative number minus a positive number will always be a negative number.
8 minus negative three or 8--3 equal positive 11. The double negative converts the minus sign into a plus sign and the negative into a positive.
"Minus a negative" is the same thing as "plus."
That is correct. If you subtract a positive number from a negative number, your result is negative.
