Positive 8.... is that right?
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
Its the double negative principle minus a negative = plus a positive4 - (-4) = 4 + 4 = 8
negative read this : "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"
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.
-12 * * * * * Wrong! -4 minus -8 = -4 + 8 = +4
The answer is negative 7 stupid.
