The answer is positive.

GenelleBabee: it becomes a positive because when you multiply two negatives it becomes a positive, & it's the same thing with division.

Yes. The negatives cancel out.

Only if you multiply or divide them.

When combining (adding) two negatives you get a negative. When multiplying two negatives you will get a positive.

Adding negatives? You get a negative. But if you multiply/divide 2 negatives, that's a positive.

Actually it does, whenever you mulitply and divide two negative and two positive numbers they always equal a positive number. When you multiply and divide a negative and positive they always equal a negative number.

If you add two negative numbers, the result is negative.If you multiply two negative numbers, the result is positive.

you get a smaller number!

It is said that two negatives equal a positive when multiplying them with coefficients.

Two negatives make a positive in multiplication and division

Yes two negatives do make a positive if you multiply.

A positive because two negatives cancel each other out to create a positive. Example: -40/-10= 4

you add the modes that you have found together and then divide that by two

Any even number

yes !

-3

you add them together and divide them by 2

It will result to the circle's radius.

Multiplying and dividing two negatives does equal a positive. Adding two negatives equals a negative, but subtracting two negatives may or may not equal a positive. Ex. -2 * -4 = 8 -10/-2 = 5 -2+ -4 = -6 -4- -2 = -2 -2- -4 = 2

When you have two negatives, you add the magnitudes, but since, you have both negatives, the direction of the resultant magnitude is along the negative direction, so you add the magnitude and put the negative sign.

Become double negative.It is true in mathematics and in nature. eg- (-2)+ (-2)= -4

No

A positive.

Well it depends on what the negatives are for example if it is "no I didn't" then that statement is still negative but if it is something like "no I never" then 1. That is incorrect grammar 2. that is a positive statement as the two negatives will cancel out.
