What is 10 the the 0 power?

I'm guessing you mean, "What is 10 to the 0th power?"The answer, of course, is the same for 10, as it is for anything else, 1, because numbers greater than 1 to a negative power are less than 1, but greater than 0, and numbers greater than 1 to powers between 0 and 1 are between 1 and that number.

What do you get when you subtract a negative by a negative?

It's either positive or negative depending on the number that is greater than the second number. Example subtract 10 from 20 the answer is 10. 20 as being the greater than 10. Another example subtract 5 from -10 the answer is -15. -10 as being the greater than 5. Take note when subtracting positive and negative integers you change the sign of the subtrahend.

Is positive 10 greater than negative 2?

Positive 10 is greater than negative 2. A good way to help visualise is to imagine a number line with 0 in the middle. 1,2,3,4 head off to the right, and -1, -2, -3, -4 head off to the left. The further the right a number is, the greater it is. So 6 is greater than 2. 8 is greater than 0, and 10 is greater than negative 2.

Can a negative number be greater than a positive number?

No. All positive numbers are greater than zero and all negative numbers are less than zero. Therefore, all positive numbers are greater than all negative numbers. That said, there is a such thing as absolute value, which is how far a number is from zero. For example the absolute value of -10 is 10. The absolute value of a negative number can be greater than that of a positive number.
