No, you add the positive to the negative.

you get nothing

The quotient of a positive integer by a negative is always negative. Say this to yourself a couple times: "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)"

I honestly don't know :D but heres something to help you "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)"

Positive plus positive equals positive. Negative plus negative equals negative. Positive greater than negative equals positive. Negative greater than positive equals negative.

No a positive plus a positive is not a negative its a positive. because um lets say 6+7 there is no negative number so its just like regular adding.

-n+-n=-2n so -1+-1=-2. In simple terms a negative plus a negative eqauls a negative. You can just add the numbers as if they are positive and then add a negative sign to the answer.

Actually it doesn't. Add two positive numbers, and you always get a positive result.

you make it a positive because negative add negative becomes a positive

A positive plus a positive will equal a positive. However a negative minus a negative will not equal a negative. It will equal a positive.

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

When you multiply a negative number by a positive number then the product is always negative. When you multiply a positive number by a negative number then the product is always negative. ( - 2 ) ( + 3 ) = - 6 ( - 4 ) ( 1 ) = - 4 ( - 1 ) 2 = - 2 ( + 2 ) ( - 2 ) = - 4 ( 3 ) ( - 2 ) = - 6 4 ( - 2 ) = - 8

negative plus positive equals to zero

Its negative

It can be positive, negative, or zero, depending what numbers you add. for example, -5 + 3=-2 but -3 +5=+2

positive plus positive equals positive negative plus negative equals negative

a positive plus a negative is a positive example 9-(-2) you would change the double negative to a positive hope this helped :)

Positive + Negative = Negative Negative + Negative = Positive Positive + Positive = Positive Negative + Positive = Negative

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.

They are always negative due to a negative plus a negative equaling a negative. It's similar to a positive plus a positive equaling a positive.

First add all the negative numbers. It -4+-3+-8 is -15. Now 3+9=12So we need to as 12 to -15 which is the same as 12-15 or -3.When you add negative numbers you can just add them like positives then place the negative sign in front of you answer. Adding a positive and a negative is like subtracting the negative one from the positive one. That is what I did.

positive is to add and negative is to subtract in math

No it equals negative. (-)+(+)=(-)

It is negative.

If you subtract a negative from a positive, add both of their absolute values. If you subtract a positive from a negative, add both of their absolute values and multiply by negative one.
