-10-(-60)=50 A negative and a negative equals a positive. Therefore, negative ten minus negative sixty is the same as negative ten PLUS sixty. Sixty minus ten equals fifty.
In this case, it would depend on how high thepositive number is. for example: negative 10 plus positive 12 would equal positive 2 because the ten negative numbers would cancel out ten of the positive twelve numbers. So the answer would be a positive number but ONLY IF you could take the sign away from the number and the positive number was higher.
10+ (-11) + 5 + (-12) = -1 + 5 -12 = 4 -12 = -8
The sum of the first ten positive integers, i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and 10, is 55. The sum of the first ten negative integers, i.e. -1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-7,-8,-9, and -10 is -55. The sum of the first ten positive integers plus the sum of the first ten negative integers is 0.
If I owed you $10 (negative 10) and paid you $2 (positive 2) how much would I still owe you? That is your answer. But we don't do your homework for you.
Negative 10 is smaller than positive 10 because it is one the plus side of the integer line. Negative 10 is 10 numbers less than 0 and positive 10 is 10 numbers more than 0
A positive number.
Six minus negative four is positive ten, because subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive.
It is minus ten.
