That is correct. If you subtract a positive number from a negative number, your result is negative.
If you subtract a positive from a negative, you will get a negative.
No, you add the positive to the negative.
positive is to add and negative is to subtract in math
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
If you subtract a negative from a positive, add both of their absolute values. If you subtract a positive from a negative, add both of their absolute values and multiply by negative one.
subtract the negative from the positive
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.
If you subtract positive twenty-seven from negative sixty-nine, you would get negative forty-two. You simply subtract the 27 from the 69 but leave the negative sign.
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.
If the negative number is bigger then the answer will be negative If the bigger number is positive then the answer will be positive. All you do is subtract the two numbers and take the sign of the bigger number Ex (+2)+(-7)=(-5)
A little awkwardly phrased, so I'll answer both ways. To subtract a negative from anything, add its positive. To subtract a positive from a negative, the equation is treated as though you are adding two postives, the result is negative.
The result can be either positive or negative, depending on the sizes of those original two negative numbers. (-8) minus (-10) = positive 2 (-8) minus (-5) = negative 3
A negative and a negative does NOT equal positive.For example(-7) + (-7) = -14 which is not positive!
It can be a negative or positive fraction, a negative or positive integer, or zero.
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.
positive and a positive is a positive negative and a negative is a positive to answer your question: positive and a negative is a negative.
6 + (-1) positive and negative will equal negative. so it's 6-1 that would equal 5. positive and positive= positive positive negative= negative negative negative = positive negative positive= negative
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.
