It all depends on the slope, really. Because remember that the formula for calculating slope is rise over run.

### In eighth grade math how do you determine the scope of line as positive negative zero or undefined?

Assuming you mean the slope of a line, not the scope, the slope of a line is determined by its rise over its run. Take 2 points on the line (x1,y1), (x2,y2) and find the slope by plugging it into this equation: (x1-x2)/(y1-y2). If the answer is positive, the slope is positive, if the answer is negative, the slope is negative, if the answer is zero, the slope is zero, and if the answer is undefined (i.e. dividing by zero), your slope is undeifined.

### Is it possible for a plus b to be neither positive nor negative?

If you're insinuating a 'B' plus as a grade, then it should be positive. Anything lower than an 87% I'd fret. For a test grade it's fine, but not so good for a final grade.

### Will the sum of two integers always be negative?

No. For example, 2 + 3 = 5 which is positive, and 2 + (-2) = 0 which is neither positive nor negative. Well, that completely discredits my 4th grade math book that said any number that is not negative IS positive. Therefore, zero is by default a positive number. However, the sum of two negative integers will always be negative. Adding a negative integer decreases the value of the result and given that both integers are negative implies that the sum will be negative. "Implies"? you say. Do you have no conviction? Cannot you say 'determines' when it is obvious? "not obvious"? you say, Then does that mean the sum of 2 negative numbers MIGHT not be negative? See, this is what happens when a 5th grade question is answered by someone with superior attitude.

### Would a negative subtracted by a positive equal a negative?

yes, especially with integers too. for example, (-5)-(+3)=-8 even if it was the other around way around so it be a positive subtracted by a negative, the sum would still be a negative. so remember, whenever you have one negative and one positive it will always be a negative!:) sorry, im just in grade 8 so don't judge.. lol

### How do you add and subtract negative and postitive numbers?

If both numbers are positive, simply add them as you learned in 4th grade. If both numbers are negative,simply add them but add a minus to the answer. If one is positive and the other negative, ignoring the signs,subtract the smaller from the larger and add the sign of the larger to your answer.
