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.

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.

Is a negative plus a positive a negative?

If you add a negative and a positive the answer (pos or neg) is that of the highest number. For example -13+ 3= -10 and -3 + 13 = 10. In this situation a negative (-) plus a positive (+) can be either negative or positive depending on which number is greater. Example: -10 + 5 = -5 because -10 is larger than 5 (even though that seems contradictory) Example: -5 + 10 = 5 because 10 is larger than -5.
