a positive number..... 2 negatives=positive

Adding negatives? You get a negative. But if you multiply/divide 2 negatives, that's a positive.

If you are multiplying a negative number times a negative number, you multiply regularly but the answer in negative. If you are multipling 2 negatives, you multiply it regularly, again, but the answer is positive, and if u multiply 2 positives, obviously its a positive.

a positive

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

Yes, when multiplying or dividing two negatives the result is a positive number.

-1/2 -2*-1/2 = 1

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

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.

When multiplied. Such as -2*-2=4

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.

Negatives and Positives Positive + Positive = Positive Negative + Negative = Positive Negative + Positive = Negative Positive + Negative = Negative

you get an positive answer ex +2 multiply +2= 4

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.

A negative times a negative times a negative (NxNxN) is a : Negative!!! Negative times a negative is positive. A positive times a negative is a negative. Remember if you are multiplying an odd number of negatives irrespective of the number of positives, it is always a negative. If you are multiplying an even number of negatives then the answer is a positive. EX: -2 x -1 x -2 ( 3 negatives so answer is negative) 2 x -2 -4 -3x-5x-1x-1x2x1 ( 4 negatives so answer is positive) 15x1x2 30

Depends on your perspective. (-1) x (-1) = +1 (-1) + (-1) = -2 (-1) / (-1) = +1 (-1) - (-1) = 0

Here's a useful tip to use when multiplying or dividing intergers:2 positives = positive2 negatives = positive (that's right, positive!)1 positive, 1 negative = negative

2 negatives make a positive

Well it depends on what the negatives are for example if it is "no I didn't" then that statement is still negative but if it is something like "no I never" then 1. That is incorrect grammar 2. that is a positive statement as the two negatives will cancel out.

the negatives cancel each other out. so just multiply the numbers. for example, -6*-3=18

-72. every time you divide or multiply negatives, two negatives = a positive. example: -8x-9= +72 -50 Divided by -5=10. if there is one negative and one positive, the answer is always negative. example: -8x5=-40 10 divided by -5=-2 ~denominatin
