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

No 2 negatives do not equal a positive because for example. : -2 + -2 = -4. You can see that when you add these 2 negative numbers right here they equal to another negative number.

I think I know what you mean. Take away followed by a Subtraction is - - Two negatives equal a positive. Therefore it is a plus. Taking away a negative number gives a plus

When multiplied. Such as -2*-2=4

It could equal both a negagtive number or a positive number. To get a definite positive or negative you times or divide. Well in addition and subtraction negative plus a negative equals a bigger negative. Kinda like -4+-4 =-8, but in multiplication and division 2 negatives equal a positive. -2 times-2 =positive 4.

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

That's not necessarily true for addition and subtraction. It's only true for multiplicatioin and division. I look at it this way: "Negative" can mean 'down' or 'not', and 'not down' is the same as 'up'.

Example-A: (2 - 1) is not equal to (1 - 2) Example-B: (4,000 - 87) is not equal to (87 - 4,000)

No, you cannot have subtraction in the associative property of multiplication because the associative property of multiplication is about multiplication. More to the point, if you're asking whether subtraction is associative, the answer is still no. (2 - 3) - 4 does not equal 2 - (3 - 4)

Addition does. Subtraction, just as with numbers: a - b is not equal to b - a, but you can change a - b to -b + a.Addition does.

If you mean negative numerator and negative denominator then the answer is Yes.

-18

You add the opposite.. Example: 3 - 4 = -1 It changes to 3 + -4 = -1 Example: 5 + 2 =7 It changes to 5 - -2 = 7 (two negatives make a positive)

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.

a negative but of there are a equal number of negatives then a positive... the negatives counter each other

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.
