In the same way that I have always used them!

Positive numbers are used for measures that are greater than zero. They may be whole numbers - such as numbers of people, or words in a question. Or they may be fractional: your height or weight.

Remember, though that one person's positive number may be another's negative. If you owe me money, it is a positive asset for me, but a negative one for you.

In most cases, negative and positive numbers are used in the same way. There are a very few situations where there seem to be special rules that are applied to negative numbers. But, if you study these from the definition of negative numbers you will see that the rules are really the same, it is just that the numbers are different. Wiki User
