I feel that two negatives are positive because you add* your two negative integers* together, you would be doing this: -+- (negative + negative) so the response is, is that if two integers where both negative, you would add, just like if there were two positives, you would add, but not if you have different signs. (positive+negative) you would subtract. Just as the same with negative + positive. [REVIEW: if the sign is the same, add, if the sign is different, you subtract.] *=you may not always add *=integers- a fancy word for numbers.

Positive.

Think of a number line with 0 in the middle. A negative integer (-3) makes you go back 3 on the number line. Now if you add a positive integer (2) you go forward two integers, landing on -1. If you are adding two negatives, the negatives cancel out and you get a positive number. In math, two wrongs make a right!
