Positive 8.... is that right?

Its the double negative principle minus a negative = plus a positive4 - (-4) = 4 + 4 = 8

When you multiply a negative number by a positive number then the product is always negative. When you multiply a positive number by a negative number then the product is always negative. ( - 2 ) ( + 3 ) = - 6 ( - 4 ) ( 1 ) = - 4 ( - 1 ) 2 = - 2 ( + 2 ) ( - 2 ) = - 4 ( 3 ) ( - 2 ) = - 6 4 ( - 2 ) = - 8

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

It is not 4 it is 12.

zero.:)

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.

Minus a negative means you can plus a positive so therefore the answer would be positive 8.

When you subtract a negative from a positive, its like adding a positive. 8-(-3) is the same as 8+3. Always remember, subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive.

4 minus -8 is 12.

-4 minus -12 is 8.

it is -8 because you are putting a positive into a negative number

The answer is negative 7 stupid.

-2 minus 8 is -10.

22 - - 8=30

12-(-8) = 20

-8 - +3 = -11

-8 - 10 = -18

2 - -8 = 10
