the same as adding whole numbers. two negatives = negative. two positives = positive, and a negative and positive depends on the absolute value of the greater number.

What is the rule for multiplying integers with different signs?

Multiply two integers disregarding the signs. Then if the signs are the same, the answer is positive and if the signs are different, the answer is negative. Alternatively, if you are multiplying together a whole bunch of numbers, first find the product while ignoring the signs. Then count all the negative numbers. If the count is even, the answer is positive and if it is odd, the answer is negative.

How do you subtract a positive by a negative?

Subtracting a positive number from a negative number is the same as adding two negative numbers, which is like adding two positive numbers except you're going to the left from zero on the number line instead of to the right. The rule is to add the absolute values (the numbers without the signs) of the two numbers and keep the negative sign. For example, -3 - 5 = (-3) + (-5) = -1 * (3 + 5) = -8.

Change it. Change it." Rule.Keep the 6.Change the + to -Change the -2 to a +2, also written as 2So, 6-2.answer would be 4.
