If you are adding a positive number, then this is the same as normal addition. For instance, 4 add positive 5 is 9. negative 1 add positive 8 is 7. If you are adding a negative number, then this is the same as subtracting that number. For instance 6 add negative 1 is 5. negative 7 add negative 2 is negative 9.

you add and keep the same sign its simple ex. -4+-85=-89

-n+-n=-2n so -1+-1=-2. In simple terms a negative plus a negative eqauls a negative. You can just add the numbers as if they are positive and then add a negative sign to the answer.

If you subtract a negative from a positive, add both of their absolute values. If you subtract a positive from a negative, add both of their absolute values and multiply by negative one.

When you add a negative number, the one on the right side gets cancelled out. E.g. -3x + - 3x = -3x

No, you add the positive to the negative.

positive is to add and negative is to subtract in math

Add the second negative to the first negative, so -1 - -2 = 1

When you add two negative integers, the answer is still negative.
