The result of subtracting a negative number minus a negative number can be positive, or negative, depending on which of the numbers is larger. It can even be zero.
A negative - even further away from zero than the first negative.
yes if u take a negative from a positve you will get a negative
Taking away a negative number is the same as adding the positive value of that number. So 5 take away (-3) = 5 add 3 = 8
Because if the number is already negative and you take away more it will be even farther away from being positive. I hope that makes sense!
take any negative number, and subtract a positive number..that is the same as adding a negative number and two negative numbers added together are a negative number.
-100(negative 100)+100(positive 100)=0. If you have 100 of something(the +100) and then take away 100 (the -100), you're left with nothing (the 0). So it's 0.
A negative subracting a positive will end up as a negative. Explanation: If you have 3 negatives, you cannnot take 3 positives from it, so you need to add 3 zeros, (which are both negative and positive), to the negative side. The number zero means nothing, so it will not alter the question. KEY _ =negative + =positive _+ =zero _ _ _ needs _+ _+ _+ to subract + + + Once you take the 3 positives from the negative side, you will be left with 6 negatives _ _ _ _+_+_+ minus + + + leaves you with _ _ _ _ _ _ *NOTE* You may be thinking, "But the zero did count! It's symbol left a mark on the answer!". Wrong. Zero in math means nothing, and that is how it will stay. You only needed it because it had the positive sign you were looking for. But because it is both positive and negative, you will be left with a negative when you take away the positive, and a positive when you take away the negative. This is why a positive subracting a negative will equal a negative.
Eight one take away negative sixty seven equals negative fourteen. This is a math problem.
9 - (-1) = +10 positive nine minus negative one equals positive ten
When adding a negative to a positive, the answer is positive if the positive is greater, and negative if the negative is greater. In other words, subtract the smaller from the larger and take the sign of the larger. Example: -7 + 9 = +2 Example: -9 + 7 = -2
Subtracting a negative is adding a positive: 1 and 2/5
You take away the negative sign and put 1 over the base with the (now positive) exponent. Example: x to the negative 2 becomes 1 over x to the 2nd.
30 becasue of the same change change rule.
Positive + positive = positive Negative + negative = negative Positive + negative will take the sign of the number with the greater absolute value.
This happens because a negative number is dominant over a positive one, so the number will multiply just as if you were multiplying even numbers, but at the end, just put a negative symbol. Also, if you multiply two negatives, they cancel themselves out, and the answer just becomes positive, but that only goes when multiplying an even amount of negative numbers together. For all of these, do the equation the same way, but at the end you may have to just add or take away a negative or positive symbol.
I think I know what you mean. Take away followed by a Subtraction is - - Two negatives equal a positive. Therefore it is a plus. Taking away a negative number gives a plus
positive + positive = add (e.g. 2 + 1 = 3)positive + negative = take (e.g. 2 + -1 = 2 - 1 = 1)positive - positive = take (e.g. 2 - 1 = 1)positive - negative = add (e.g. 2 - -1 = 2 + 1 = 3)negative + positive = add (e.g. -2 + 1 = -1)negative + negative = take (e.g. -2 + -1 = -2 - 1 = -3)negative - positive = take (e.g. -2 - 1 = -3)negative - negative = add (e.g. -2 - -1 = -2 + 1 = -1)
The letter X negative take away seven take away five take away one is an equation. This equation equals .500.
It's saying subtract a negative number, so take away from something that negative is adding something positive. Think about it like this, If you have a number 5, and someone says to you take away from 5 negative 2, you'd have 7. If what you subtract from something is negative, you gain. I know it may not make sense, but think about it for a bit and I'm sure you'll get it, if not, just remember to do it when you're doing your work.
it has a negative connotation, i believe
If you have negative 8 and subtract 3, you keep going backwards...so you get negative 11. or if you have negative 3 apples, and take away 3, then you have negative 6 apples. Subtraction of a negative number from another negative number can be positive For example: If you have negative three and subtract negative eight you get positive five. -3 - (-8) = 5
Negative is it'll take longer to do things and positive is everyone is happy... :/
You actually take the positive, and put it in front:2+-5=?Then make the negative positive and subtract:2-5=-3dude just reme.... + plus a + = +and a - plus + = -and a - minus a - equals a -and a - minus a plus a + = -ok... sozz... a bit unclear... =='
