Because "minus a negative" is tha same as "plus a positive". So, a positive minus a negative is a positive plus a positive which is a positive.

Always positive.

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

(-7) - (+8) = -7 -8 = -15

A negative number minus a positive number will always be a negative number.

It can equal a positive, zero or a negative number.

8 minus negative three or 8--3 equal positive 11. The double negative converts the minus sign into a plus sign and the negative into a positive.

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

11 positive 11 positive 11

That is correct. If you subtract a positive number from a negative number, your result is negative.

A minus plus a minus is not necessarily positive. A minus multiplied by a minus is. The reason being that the minus of a minus is a positive. It's a double negative.

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.

Positive. 7 - (-4) = 11

-56
