No. The sum of two negative numbers will always be a negative number.

If, however, you multiply the numbers, their product will be positive.

How many protons and electrons dose H plus have?

H+ has 1 proton and 0 electrons.Normal hydrogen has 1 proton and 1 electron. The number of protons always remains the same. The negative electron and the positive proton balance out the charge so that normal elemental hydrogen is neutral.H+ is the oxidized form of hydrogen. Its electron was taken away, so now it's left with 1 proton and 0 electrons, making its charge positive.H- is the reduced form of hydrogen. It has gained an electron, so now it has 1 positive proton and 2 negative electrons, making the charge equal to negative 1.

Which is a likely result of taking LSD?

If taking a dose of LSD above 50 mcg effects will be felt. These effects range from positive, such as a sense of enlightenment, appreciation of colors and music, to negative, such as jaw clenching and panic attacks. If taking a ridiculously high dose HPPD can be developed (but since you're asking this question I wouldn't consider it). Long term effects are close to none except the memory of the experience (whether positive or negative). For a very small percentage of users the experience can have long lasting mental effects (<1%) such as flash backs or uncovering mental illnesses.
