Q: Subtract Integer- what does positive 4 subtract positive 7 equal?

Write your answer...

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.

A negative

a negative subtracted by a positive will always equal a negative.

Yes.

If I'm not mistaken its 2 of the same type of integer ( negative negative/positive positive ) equal the same type of integer EX: -1 - (-1)= -1 and if the integers are opposite ( positive negative/negative positive ) then its the sign of the higher number EX: -2 - 6 = 4

No, 6,500 subtract 4,068 is 2,432.

That is correct. If you subtract a positive number from a negative number, your result is negative.

On the number line if you subtract a positive you move left. If you add a positive you move right. If add a negative you move left. If you subtract a negative you move right. That is just how I learned it. I don't know a wordy explanation.

Often, but not always. It depends upon what you do with them. If the numbers are not equal, and you subtract the larger from the smaller, the answer will be negative.

+ and - are used to subtract and add, also to indicate if positive or negative. When the integer is positive you don't have to place a sign. When the _x wherein _ is equal to 1, you also don't have to place 1 beside x. That's stupidity.

Find a common denominator of the fraction parts (the least common denominator is the popular choice). If the fraction part of the subtrahend is bigger than that of the minuend, you need to subtract 1 from the integer (whole number) part of the minuend and add it (as a fraction) to the fraction part. For example, 5 3/7 becomes 4 10/7. Then you can subtract the fraction parts by subtracting the numerators, and subtract the integer parts, provided the integer part of the minuend is greater than or equal to that in the subtrahend. If not, reverse the roles of the minuend and subtrahend and use the above method to subtract, then make the sign of the difference negative.

Depends what your doing with them. You can subtract two positives and get a negative but if we add two positives we get a positive

Yes, and also a negative integer divided by a negative integer is equal to a positive number (but not necessarily an integer).

When the positive integer is greater than the negative integer.

what is the answer

39

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.

The number of protons in an atom is equal to its atomic number. In a neutral atom, the number of electrons is equal to that of protons. If the atom is negatively charged, add it to the number of electrons; and if positive, subtract.
