No, you add the positive to the negative.
Negative sixteen plus thirty two is 16. When a number is negative, subtract the negative number from the positive one to find the answer.
You will get a positive integer. If you subtract a negative number, you will be adding it. I think of it like 2 minuses equals a plus. :P
Well you subtract -8 by 24 and get 16. You dont add because It is a negative #.
Its the double negative principle minus a negative = plus a positive4 - (-4) = 4 + 4 = 8
-90 (when you add a negative you simply subtract so -40-50 is -90)
The sum of -5 plus 11 is 6. When a negative is added to the positive you subtract instead of add to get your answer.
a negative minus a negative = a positive. the two negatives put together make a plus sign. example... 5-(-7) = 13
If you subtract a negative number from another number, you always get a bigger number. That is because minus a minus is a plus So you could subtract any negative number from 10 and answer is bigger than 10.
Ten plus ten plus ten minus two hundred equals negative one hundred seventy.
-8 + 4 - (-9) = -8 + 4 + 9 = -8 + 13 = 5.
4 because you are suppose to subtract and keep thesign of the bigger number
No a positive plus a positive is not a negative its a positive. because um lets say 6+7 there is no negative number so its just like regular adding.
-5 then add +15 -5 subtract +15=10
You would subtract. For example, if you have 5-7, you would subtract the two like normal. And if you have 5+(-7) you would also subtract, because adding a negative number to a positive is the same as subtracting.
-10-(-60)=50 A negative and a negative equals a positive. Therefore, negative ten minus negative sixty is the same as negative ten PLUS sixty. Sixty minus ten equals fifty.
well, if it is a negative plus a positive, it would be much like subtracting backwards, like this: -4+7=3 or -11+7=-4 also, if it is a positive plus a negative, you subtract 4+(-7)=-3 or 11+(-7)=4
If you subtract positive twenty-seven from negative sixty-nine, you would get negative forty-two. You simply subtract the 27 from the 69 but leave the negative sign.
-5 Here is a quick tip, when the negative number is larger, pretend it is positive and subtract the smaller one from it. Then just put the negative sign back on
In math when you are given a negative and a positive number, you should write down the sign of the greatest number and subtract the smaller number from the greatest number. In the problem 3 - 9, three is the positive number, and nine is the negative number. This means you should write down the negative number's sign and subtract 3 from 9, and your answer should be -6.
When you add negative 2 to it, or subtract 2 from it. (Among nearly infinitely other possibilities)
