no not always. as long as the first number is bigger than the second number. if it is not, the answer is negative. 7-5=2 5-7= -2

No.

It´s like adding them. You pretend that the second number is a positive number and then you add the two numbers together. For example: (-7) - (-2) = -7 + 2 = -5 (-2) - (-7) = -2 + 7 = 5

It is 35 because .7 is greater than .5

No negative 5 is greater than negative 7. Remember, when you go right on a number line the amount of what you have gets bigger. If you go left on the number line the amount you have gets smaller. In terms, think of this. If you were sitting at $-5, how would you get to negative $-7? You'd go left(spend)? So this means that the amount is getting smaller.
