Using the same principles as multiplying a negative whole number by a positive whole number, where the result would be a negative, the product of a (positive) fraction and a negative whole number would equal the product of the two, with the minus sign included. For example, 1/2 x -4 = -2. The same rule can be applied the other way around, multiplying a negative fraction by a positive number would produce the same result.

Reduce it as you would normally, negative fractions are no different to positive fractions. Also, it doesn't matter which of the numerator or denominator are negative, as long as when it is reduced the fraction is negative overall.

In the same way that you would answer a fraction subtract another fraction. The result could be either positive or negative, just as is the case with negative whole numbers.

like you would with a regular faction. just keep the negative at the top once you have simlified it

Deduct negative from positive. for example 2 1/4 +-2=1/4.

On a number line, the positive numbers extend to the right of zero, and the negative numbers extend to the left of zero. So -3.4 is 3.4 to the left of zero.

The answer to a problem that has a negative number added to a negative number would be negative.It would be a negative

Acceleration is negative when the object is moving in the opposite direction. on a graph the line would be in the negative quadrant.

It would have a downhill slope from left to right

The negative reciprocal of any gradient gives the gradient of the line perpendicular to it. If you had a line of gradient 2, the negative reciprocal would be -1/2 Just change the sign on the number and flip the number/fraction to get the negative reciprocal.

The first stage in dividing by a negative mixed number would be to convert that number into a top-heavy or vulgar fraction. Once this has been done, you ignore the negative sign for the time being, and multiply the number by the denominator. After this, you divide by the numerator. Finally, you swap the sign of the number you started with. If you were dividing a negative number the answer is positive. If you were dividing a positive number the answer is negative.

This depends on what the graph represents. If it is a graph of velocity on the vertical and time on the horizontal, then if acceleration is at a constant rate, the graph will be a straight line with positive slope (pointing 'up'). If acceleration stops, then the graph will be a horizontal line (zero acceleration or deceleration). If it is deceleration (negative acceleration), then the graph will have negative slope (pointing down).

Yes. If the fraction is the same, the negative slope would have at least one negative number, while the positive would have both positive numbers. I'm pretty sure. :)

a bar graph because the line graph shows something in a period of time. Also a bar graph would show the number of birds and the color of them at the time while a line graph would show only the number of birds and the time.

The line would decrease as the time increased and it would stop once it touched the X axis because you cannot have a negative velocity. This graph would represent an inverse relationship between velocity and negative acceleration/

a proper fraction, a decimal or a negative number.

That depends on what your graph is showing about the USA, compared to the other countries. Your graph may be showing fraction of world population, fraction of world GDP, fraction of world energy consumption, fraction of the world's Jews, fraction of the world's oil production, fraction of world oil refineries, etc. The USA section on each one would be different.

A negative number divided by a positive number will be a negative number. For example: -20 / 4 = -5 -100 / 2 = -50 Here are the other cases of division by positive or negative numbers. A negative number divided by a negative number would be a positive number. A positive number divided by a positive number would be a positive number. A positive number divided by a negative number would be a negative number.

bar graph

If a i positive, -a is negative; if a is negative, -a is positive.

A negative times a positive is a negative and that negative times a negative would = a positive. So the answer would be a positive number. *<:)

The decimal would be negative. Ex: -2/3 is -0.67

It would be an improper fraction.

You convert the fraction do decimal exactly as you would a positive fraction. Then you stick a minus sign in front.

It would be -3/1
