Subtract and add the sign of the greater number.
You have to take the negative sign away from the negative number and add them.
That is correct. If you subtract a positive number from a negative number, your result is negative.
depends if the first number is bigger than the second number than it is a negative
The answer to the problem is -40. When you subtract a larger number from a smaller number, the result is a negative number.
A little awkwardly phrased, so I'll answer both ways. To subtract a negative from anything, add its positive. To subtract a positive from a negative, the equation is treated as though you are adding two postives, the result is negative.
always a negative number. just think about going backwards on a number line.
No.If you subtract a positive number, you move to the left.If you subtract a negative number, you move to the right.
the number gets lower
If you subtract a negative number from another number, you always get a bigger number. That is because minus a minus is a plus So you could subtract any negative number from 10 and answer is bigger than 10.
