It can equal a positive, zero or a negative number.
The result can be positive, negative, or zero.
a negative number
Positive is above zero and negative is below zero.positive: +8 or 8negative: - 8if it has a (line) minus sign in front of it, its negative...If it has nothing or a (cross) adding sign then its Positive!
This become a plus positive, -7 minus -7 leaves zero
It depends. (a) a positive minus a smaller positive is positive, (b) a positive minus a positive of the same size is zero, and (c) a positive minus a bigger positive is negative. For example, (a) 8 - 6 = 2 (b) 8 - 8 = 0 (c) 8 - 11 = -3
No, not counting zero,the difference is always positive since minus a minus is plus
The term "minus zero" is mathematically pointless, since zero is neither positive nor negative, being the exact point at which positive numbers meet negative numbers on the number line. Zero is just zero.
It could be negative, zero or positive depending upon the relative sizes of the numbers: -5 - -4 = -1 (negative) -5 - -5 = 0 (zero) -5 - -6 = 1 (positive)
Zero is not negative. It is not positive either.Zero is not negative. It is not positive either.Zero is not negative. It is not positive either.Zero is not negative. It is not positive either.
Neither. It represents "nothing" Zero is neither a positive or negative number. It is just plain zero. So you don't have to stress on remembering if it's a plus or minus! :0) neither 0 is neither negative nor positive. Zero is neither positive nor negative.
No.Unless the slope is zero, every line will extend from minus infinity to plus infinity. So part of it will be negative and part positive.No.Unless the slope is zero, every line will extend from minus infinity to plus infinity.

A negative minus a negative turns the latter into a plus positive,for example -6 minus -3 would be :-6 ++ 3 = -3A minus negative always turns into a plus positive...To get more Specific:Suppose x and y are two POSITIVE numbers so that -x and -y are negative. Then a negative minus a negative = (-x) - (-y) = -x +yIf x > y the answer is negativeIf x = y the answer is zeroIf x < y the answer is positive
The result of subtracting a negative number minus a negative number can be positive, or negative, depending on which of the numbers is larger. It can even be zero.
If the number is zero, then it is neither positive nor negative.For all other integers: If there is a minus sign, "-", before the integer, then it is negative. If there is a plus sign, "+", before the integer or no sign at all, then it is positive.
Suppose x and y are two POSITIVE numbers so that -x and -y are negative. Then a negative minus a negative = (-x) - (-y) = -x +y If x > y the answer is negative If x = y the answer is zero If x < y the answer is positive
There is no negative of zero, nor is there a positive. Zero is no value, hence it has no positive or negative value.
Negative plus a negative is a negative. Ex. -1+-1=-2 Negative times a negative is a positive. -2*-2=4 But a negative [minus] plus a positive [plus] can be minus, zero or plus: For example, -3 + 2 = -1 -3 + 3 = 0 -3 + 4 = +1
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 subracting a positive will end up as a negative. Explanation: If you have 3 negatives, you cannnot take 3 positives from it, so you need to add 3 zeros, (which are both negative and positive), to the negative side. The number zero means nothing, so it will not alter the question. KEY _ =negative + =positive _+ =zero _ _ _ needs _+ _+ _+ to subract + + + Once you take the 3 positives from the negative side, you will be left with 6 negatives _ _ _ _+_+_+ minus + + + leaves you with _ _ _ _ _ _ *NOTE* You may be thinking, "But the zero did count! It's symbol left a mark on the answer!". Wrong. Zero in math means nothing, and that is how it will stay. You only needed it because it had the positive sign you were looking for. But because it is both positive and negative, you will be left with a negative when you take away the positive, and a positive when you take away the negative. This is why a positive subracting a negative will equal a negative.
Positive and negative whole numbers and zero are integers. Zero is neither negative or positive.
If you mean the difference in terms of numerical value, then it is the positive faction minus the negative faction, which is calculated as the positive fraction plus the absolute value* of the negative fraction - just like the difference between a positive and negative number. * The absolute value of a number is the value of the number ignoring any minus sign; eg abs(-4) = 4 = abs(4). If you mean the difference in terms of where they are on the number line, then the positive fraction is one side of zero (it is greater than zero) and the negative fraction is the other side of zero (it is less than zero).
There are just three possible cases: Positive integer: positive x positive = positive. Negative integer: negative x negative = positive. Zero: zero x zero = zero.
