Q: What is a negative subtracted by a positive?

Write your answer...

A negative number subtracted by a positive number will always end up negative.

a negative subtracted by a positive will always equal a negative.

its a negative number.

When a positive number is subtracted from zero the result is a negative number.

Always yes

Yes, a negative number subtracted from a positive number will always be positive. Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the opposite of the negative number. The opposite of a negative number is always positive. A positive number plus a positive number is always positive.

-6

Yes.

You get a positive subtracted number. A negative minus a positive number will always give a negative answer. And the answer will be more negative than either of the two numbers.

The sign of the answer will always be a positive number because subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive (

If the integer subtracted is smaller than or equal to the first integer, then the answer is positive. Otherwise, if the integer subtracted is larger, then the answer is negative.

Subtracting a negative is like adding a positive.

The Answer could be neither positive nor negative because the positivve could be bigger than the negative or the neagative could be bigger than the positive

Yes. A negative subtracted by a negative is a positive. Just remember that two like signs become a positive sign, and two unlike signs become a negative sign.

No, any negative number subtracted from a positive is like addition. For example 1 - (-1) is the same as 1 + 1, so by adding two positive numbers you can't get zero.

A negative and a negative can yield a positive result in some cases.SubtractionSubtracting a negative number is the same as adding its negative value, which is positive. So if the subtracted number is larger in value, the answer will be positive.(-4) - (-3) = (-4) + 3 = (-1) * the subtracted number was not large enough(-4) - (-8) = (-4) + 8 = 4 *the subtracted number was large enough to yield a positiveMultiplication and DivisionWhenever a negative number and a negative number are multiplied or divided, the negative signs "cancel out" and the result is positive.(-2) x (-3) = 6(-6) / (-3) = 2A multiplication or division involving one negative and one positive will, however, have a negative result.

When they are added together and the absolute value of the positive integer is bigger than the absolute value of the negative integer or when the negative integer is subtracted from the positive integer.

a positive answer

Yes. to subtract a negative is to add that number, so the number will be higher than the first number which is positive and can't go below zero.

LOVE to HATE = Hate (Negative)LOVE to LOVE = Love (Positive)HATE to HATE = Hate (Negative)HATE to LOVE = Hate (Negative)HATE is a NEGATIVE numberLOVE is a POSITIVE number

yes, especially with integers too. for example, (-5)-(+3)=-8 even if it was the other around way around so it be a positive subtracted by a negative, the sum would still be a negative. so remember, whenever you have one negative and one positive it will always be a negative!:) sorry, im just in grade 8 so don't judge.. lol

If you are asking how many numbers difference is there between two numbers, then it will be positive. If you are referring to subtraction, if the number you are subtracting from is the larger number, it will be positive. If it is smaller it will be negative. 3 - 2 = 1 (3, the number being subtracted from, is larger, so the answer is positive) 2 - 3 = -1 (2, the number being subtracted from, is smaller, so the answer is negative)

Well, a positive number minus a greater positive number equals a negative number. But it's impossible for a negative number to be subtracted from any number.

16. Negative times divided subtracted or added to another negative number always equals a positive answer.

If you multiply a positive number by a negative it always equals a negative number.Depends what you mean by "and".If they're added: neverIf they're subtracted: sometimesIf they're multiplied or divided: always
