A negative + a negative + a negative equals a negative. Adding a negative number is equal to subtracting a positive number. For example: -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-2)-2-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-4)-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-6)

Negative one, since +2+(-3)

-6 + +8 = +2

It can be positive, negative, or zero, depending what numbers you add. for example, -5 + 3=-2 but -3 +5=+2

A Negative plus a positive = a negative because negative and a positive cannot work together Negative + Negative= Positive Positive + Positive = Positive when your dealing with numbers such as : -2 + 2 would equal a negative 4 -2 +-2 would equal a positive 4

It could equal both a negagtive number or a positive number. To get a definite positive or negative you times or divide. Well in addition and subtraction negative plus a negative equals a bigger negative. Kinda like -4+-4 =-8, but in multiplication and division 2 negatives equal a positive. -2 times-2 =positive 4.

Negative plus a negative is a negative. Ex. -1+-1=-2 Negative times a negative is a positive. -2*-2=4 But a negative [minus] plus a positive [plus] can be minus, zero or plus: For example, -3 + 2 = -1 -3 + 3 = 0 -3 + 4 = +1

Negative. Adding a negative is the same as subtracting a positive. -2 + -3= -2 - 3= -5, not 1

negative -1/2+-1/2 = -1

A negative + a negative + a negative equals a negative. Adding a negative number is equal to subtracting a positive number. For example: -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-2)-2-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-4)-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-6)

Negative one, since +2+(-3)

some times 3+(-2) = 1 but 2+(-3) = -1

-6 + +8 = +2

It depends on the magnitude of the negative and positive values. Equal magnitudes equal zero. -2 + 2 = 0 Larger negative number than positive number equals a negative number. -3 + 2 = -1 Smaller negative number than positive number equals a positive number. -2 + 3 = 1
