Simple math rules state that a negative times a negative equals a positive!
I would think so because using the negative math rules it would seem so
positive is to add and negative is to subtract in math
If you are talking about the multiplication rules than they would be; a negative times a negative is a positive a negative times a positive is a negative
negative times negative = positive positive times positive = positive negative times positive = negative positive times negative = negative
positive X positive = positive positive X negative = negative negative X positive = negative negative X negative = positive
Positive x Positive =Positive Positive x Negative= Negative Negative x Positive= Negative Negative x Negative =Positive
The rules for division are the same as for multiplication. Positive multiplied (or divided) by negative is negative.
It is a rule in math!
In math, a positive is a number greater then zero, and a negative number is less than zero.
In Math, a negative can be represented with -. A positive can be represented with +, or just without a -.
negative. why is this question in math when it should be in chemistry?
When you add: a negative and a negative: you get a negative a positive and a positive: you get a positive a positive and a negative or a negative and a positive: Subtract the addend with the smaller value from the greater one. If the greater one is positive, your answer will be positive. If the greater addend is negative, your answer will be negative.
Yes, when a positive is divided by a negative, it is negative. ex: 4/-2 would equal -2. It takes two negatives to make a positive in math when you are multiplying or dividing.
It is the same rules that apply for multiplying them:positive and negative are negativepositive and positive are positivenegitve and negative are positive
Negative 5. It's normal division, except you need to remember these rules: Positive & Negative = Negative Positive & Positive = Positive
negative times negative equals positive negative times positive equals.....you subtract the bigger number by the smaller number and keep the sign of the bigger number positive times positive equals positive im pretty sure thats right but i would make sure with your math teacher abt the second one i said
That is part of the basic rules of Math: A: Multiply a Negative and a Negative will result in a Postive. B. Multiply a Negative and a Postive will result in a Negative. BTW, unlike English grammar, rules of Math are true at all times.
With both positive it's positive, with both negative it's negative.
In math, positive means greater than zero, and negative means less than zero.
following multiplication integer rules and division rules, you should get: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)" a division problem is a multiplication problem in disguise
Due to the sign rules for multiplication, if you multiply several negative numbers, you'll get a result that is alternately negative, positive, negative, positive, etc.
Positive x Positive = Positive: 3 x 2 = 6Negative x Negative = Positive: (-2) x (-8) = 16Negative x Positive = Negative: (-3) x 4 = -12Positive x Negative = Negative: 3 x (-4) = -12
Divide as you would divide positive fractions. That is, convert both fractions to positive, then do the division. After that, apply the rules for dividing positive and negative numbers. For example, if one of the fractions is positive and the other negative, the answer will be negative.
Because when there is a positive and a negative in the same problem, it gives you a negative. An easy way to solve problems like that is if there is an odd number of negative signs, then your answer is going to be negative. If there is an even number of negative signs, then your answer is going to be positive. (no matter if there is a positive sign in a math problem).
