A positive plus a positive will equal a positive. However a negative minus a negative will not equal a negative. It will equal a positive.

(-7)-(+2)=-5

Yes, for any value of the two numbers.

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

The problem 20 minus negative 24 equals 44 because two negatives become a positive.

It can. Negative 2 minus negative 1 = negative 1. However, it sometimes might be positive. Negative 5 minus negative 16 = positive 11. If you have two equal negative variables, such as -a - -a, you will get -2a. -2a may still be positive though, if a is a negative number. An example of having two unequal negative numbers is -a - -b, which is -a + b. That may be positive or negative depending on what a and b are equal to.

yes

It always is a negative number. The result will be the sum of the two digits with a minus sign in front of it, eg, (-4) - (+7) = -4 - 7 = -11.

Suppose x and y are two POSITIVE numbers so that -x and -y are negative. Then a negative minus a negative = (-x) - (-y) = -x +y If x > y the answer is negative If x = y the answer is zero If x < y the answer is positive

-12 - (-3) Two negatives equal a positive. So, -12 + 3 = -9

A positive number minus a negative number? x - -x is the same as x + x because the negative signs cancel each other out and become positive. So, when you see two negative signs right after the other, just add.

Addition and multiplication are two different operators so it is no surprise that their outputs are different. Otherwise there would be no point in having different operators.For example, a negative minus a negative can be positive, negative or zero!
