Positive 3 plus negative 5 minus negative 2 minus positive 4 is equal to -4.

positive 4

if a positive number minus a negative number, the minus turns to a plus sign. so its positive Ex. 2- -4= 2+4=6

zero.

The Answer is a Positive 9

Negative. Example: (-1) - (+1) = -2

A negative minus a positive is a negative. i.e -1-(+1)= -2

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

It depends. (a) a positive minus a smaller positive is positive, (b) a positive minus a positive of the same size is zero, and (c) a positive minus a bigger positive is negative. For example, (a) 8 - 6 = 2 (b) 8 - 8 = 0 (c) 8 - 11 = -3

When you multiply a negative number by a positive number then the product is always negative. When you multiply a positive number by a negative number then the product is always negative. ( - 2 ) ( + 3 ) = - 6 ( - 4 ) ( 1 ) = - 4 ( - 1 ) 2 = - 2 ( + 2 ) ( - 2 ) = - 4 ( 3 ) ( - 2 ) = - 6 4 ( - 2 ) = - 8

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

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

Six because 2 --4 = 6

12 because the negative of the negative is positive

A negative minus a positive is a negative. i.e -1-(+1)= -2

negative*negative=positive ex. negative 2*negative 2= positive 4

Minus a negative means you can plus a positive so therefore the answer would be positive 8.

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.

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

negative 9

well it depends if the negative is bigger than the positive or viseversa. lets say you have -5+7 it would equal 2. if it was -7+5 it would equal -2. In short, a positive number plus a negative number is the same thing as a positive number minus another positive number. Example: 3 + (-2) = 1 3 - 2 = 1

a negative minus a positive is a negative ex: -12-13=-25 -9-2=-11 -100-1=-101

3

2 - (-3) = 5 (The minus a negative becomes a positive, thus 2 + 3 = 5).

negative 5
