If you subtract a positive from a negative, you will get a negative.
A negative number subtracted by a positive number will always end up negative.
a negative subtracted by a positive will always equal a negative.
its a negative number.
Yes, a negative number subtracted from a positive number will always be positive. Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the opposite of the negative number. The opposite of a negative number is always positive. A positive number plus a positive number is always positive.
When a positive number is subtracted from zero the result is a negative number.
The sign of the answer will always be a positive number because subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive (
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.
The Answer could be neither positive nor negative because the positivve could be bigger than the negative or the neagative could be bigger than the positive
No, any negative number subtracted from a positive is like addition. For example 1 - (-1) is the same as 1 + 1, so by adding two positive numbers you can't get zero.
If the integer subtracted is smaller than or equal to the first integer, then the answer is positive. Otherwise, if the integer subtracted is larger, then the answer is negative.
When they are added together and the absolute value of the positive integer is bigger than the absolute value of the negative integer or when the negative integer is subtracted from the positive integer.
No. When you subtract negative numbers, they have the same effect as if you added a positive number. In this scenario as described, the only result would be a positive number.
Subtracting a negative is like adding a positive.
a positive answer
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.
16. Negative times divided subtracted or added to another negative number always equals a positive answer.
negative number subtracted FROM a negative number will be negative
Yes. A negative subtracted by a negative is a positive. Just remember that two like signs become a positive sign, and two unlike signs become a negative sign.
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
Subtracting a negative number has the same effect as adding a positive number - think of it as moving right on a number line whereas, subtracting a positive number will move you left on a number line.
If you are asking how many numbers difference is there between two numbers, then it will be positive. If you are referring to subtraction, if the number you are subtracting from is the larger number, it will be positive. If it is smaller it will be negative. 3 - 2 = 1 (3, the number being subtracted from, is larger, so the answer is positive) 2 - 3 = -1 (2, the number being subtracted from, is smaller, so the answer is negative)
