To subtract a negative from a positive to 2 minus signs go together. For example 12-(-3) becomes 12+3. (brackets aren't necessary but make it easier to understand.

Electrons have a negative charge, protons have a positive charge... Every electron cancels out the charge of a proton so if you subtract electrons from protons (10 - 12 = -2) you get the charge.

10 - -12 = 22

You can first subtract 2 from 12 to get 10. Then when you bring 10 across the = sign, it becomes -10, so 42-10 is 32.

The sum of -10 and -2 is -12.

It depends on the value of those numbers. ---------------------------- You always get a positive number. "Subtracting a negative number" is the same as "adding a positive number" because the two negatives "cancel." If I do something like 10 - (-12), this is the same as 10+12, or 22 (positive).

10 to the negative 12 power

12

10-12 = 1 / (1012) = 0.000000000001

get them to have the same demoninator. like if you have 5/6-3/4 make it 10/12-9/12. then just subtract.

10-12 is called one trillionth.

-2+12 = 10

If you mean when you subtract a negative from a positive what does it make? If so, you will get a positive answer. This is because the two negative symbols are basically multiplied, and if you multiply two negatives you get a positive, so a positive number minus a negative number becomes a positive number plus a positive number. 6 - (-5) = 11 2 - (-10) = 12 125 - (-15) = 140

-21 increased by 12 is the same as -21 + 12, and this is equal to -9. A quick way of answering this is to subtract 12 from 21, then put a negative sign in front of it.

12 because the negative of the negative is positive

- (3/4) - (-5/6) = - (9/12) - (-10/12) = - 9/12 + 10/12 = 1/12

10-(-2)=10+2=12.

1 and 10/12

Subtract two, multiply by two, subtract one. :)
