Positive

a positive

The product is 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

A positive.

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

(positive) 13.

Goes towards positive.for instance, -7 minus -7 = 0or -10 minus -4 = -6OR -25 minus -30 = positive 5

Negative 18 minus positive 12 is negative 30.
