Yes, a negative number subtracted from a positive number will always be positive. Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the opposite of the negative number. The opposite of a negative number is always positive. A positive number plus a positive number is always positive.

You get a positive subtracted number. A negative minus a positive number will always give a negative answer. And the answer will be more negative than either of the two numbers.

The sign of the answer will always be a positive number because subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive (

If the integer subtracted is smaller than or equal to the first integer, then the answer is positive. Otherwise, if the integer subtracted is larger, then the answer is negative.

Subtracting a negative is like adding a positive.

Yes. A negative subtracted by a negative is a positive. Just remember that two like signs become a positive sign, and two unlike signs become a negative sign.

No, any negative number subtracted from a positive is like addition. For example 1 - (-1) is the same as 1 + 1, so by adding two positive numbers you can't get zero.

a positive answer

When they are added together and the absolute value of the positive integer is bigger than the absolute value of the negative integer or when the negative integer is subtracted from the positive integer.

A negative and a negative can yield a positive result in some cases.SubtractionSubtracting a negative number is the same as adding its negative value, which is positive. So if the subtracted number is larger in value, the answer will be positive.(-4) - (-3) = (-4) + 3 = (-1) * the subtracted number was not large enough(-4) - (-8) = (-4) + 8 = 4 *the subtracted number was large enough to yield a positiveMultiplication and DivisionWhenever a negative number and a negative number are multiplied or divided, the negative signs "cancel out" and the result is positive.(-2) x (-3) = 6(-6) / (-3) = 2A multiplication or division involving one negative and one positive will, however, have a negative result.

Yes. to subtract a negative is to add that number, so the number will be higher than the first number which is positive and can't go below zero.

No. When you subtract negative numbers, they have the same effect as if you added a positive number. In this scenario as described, the only result would be a positive number.

16. Negative times divided subtracted or added to another negative number always equals a positive answer.

yes, especially with integers too. for example, (-5)-(+3)=-8 even if it was the other around way around so it be a positive subtracted by a negative, the sum would still be a negative. so remember, whenever you have one negative and one positive it will always be a negative!:) sorry, im just in grade 8 so don't judge.. lol
