When combining (adding) two negatives you get a negative. When multiplying two negatives you will get a positive.

It is said that two negatives equal a positive when multiplying them with coefficients.

Two negatives make a positive in multiplication and division

Yes two negatives do make a positive if you multiply.

yes !

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

When you have two negatives, you add the magnitudes, but since, you have both negatives, the direction of the resultant magnitude is along the negative direction, so you add the magnitude and put the negative sign.

If two lines are parallel and one has a slope of 1.3, what is the slope of the other line?

The answer is positive.

No

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.

positive two negatives equal a positive a positive times a positive is a positive.

No but if the two lines are parallel then they will have the same slope.

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

When you multiply two negatives the negatives cancel one and other out.

You get a negative

in a positive

Yes.

you get a positive.

two negatives multiplied by each other would create a positive, since the two negatives cancel out each other

two negatives makes a positive, meaning you add. i.e. 2 - -2 = 2+2 = 4

If two lines are parallel, then they will both have the same slope.

The slope of line AB will be 1/2. Two parallel lines will always have the same slope, so if you know the slope of one line that is parallel to another, you know the other line's slope.
