# Is a negative number minus another negative a positive number or a negative number?

It depends on the second number because in 6minus-7. the seven would turn positive and therefore the answer is positive. Because you would add the opposite.

A negative number minus a positive number will always be a negative number.

A negative number minus a positive number equals a minus number( E.G -5 - [+]5 = -10)A negative number minus a negative number equals a positive number ( If the number's big enough)(E.G -5 - -5 = 0 )Hope this helps :)

"Minus a negative number" is the same as "plus a positive number" so you have a positive plus a positive number - making a bigger positive number.

You get a positive subtracted number. A negative minus a positive number will always give a negative answer. And the answer will be more negative than either of the two numbers.

Because minus a negative number is equivalent to plus a positive number. So, in effect, you have a positive number plus a positive number and that is going to be positive.

The same as a positive one. If you are multiplying a positive number by a negative, the answer will be negative. If you are multiplying a negative number by a negative, the answer will be positive.

you change the minus to a positive and change the 2nd positive number to a negative number..the answer can be either negative or positive depending on the sign of the greatest number(:

That is correct. If you subtract a positive number from a negative number, your result is negative.

Well, a positive number minus a greater positive number equals a negative number. But it's impossible for a negative number to be subtracted from any number.

It can equal a positive, zero or a negative number.

if a positive number minus a negative number, the minus turns to a plus sign. so its positive Ex. 2- -4= 2+4=6

A negative number divided by a positive number, or a positive number divided by a negative number, results in a negative number.

a negative minus a positive is like addition, you take the negative add the positive, then make that number a negative.Example-5 - 4add them5 + 4= 9make that number a negative= -9

negative read this : "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative &divide; negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative &divide; positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive &divide; positive = positive)"

The quotient of a positive integer by a negative is always negative. Say this to yourself a couple times: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative &divide; negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative &divide; positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive &divide; positive = positive)"

1 is the answer +8-(-7) = 15 If you subtract a negative number, you sign is changed to addition. A positive minus a minus = a positive. (two minuses next to one another = a +) +8-(-7) =+8+7 =15

the number that has the minus sign in front of it is negative and the normal number is positive example: negative: -9 positive: 9

A positive minus a negative is a positive.

Positive. A negative number added to a positive would reduce the original to a smaller positive, to zero, or to a negative depending on their relative values but subtracting a negative number from a positive number will always increase the value of the positive.

A negative number divided by another negative number (much like a negative number multiplied by another negative number) gives you a positive result. The two minus signs cancel each other out.

I honestly don't know :D but heres something to help you "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative &divide; negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative &divide; positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive &divide; positive = positive)"

A minus plus a minus is not necessarily positive. A minus multiplied by a minus is. The reason being that the minus of a minus is a positive. It's a double negative.

The answer to this is -4, or negative 4. A positive number minus a positive number bigger than it will always be negative.
