(+8) - (-2) = +10

-10

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

-2 minus 8 is -10.

(+2) - (-6) = +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

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.

The result can be either positive or negative, depending on the sizes of those original two negative numbers. (-8) minus (-10) = positive 2 (-8) minus (-5) = negative 3

The answer is negative 7 stupid.

Positive 8.... is that right?

-12

15

11.

Positive 8.

8 :)

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

22 - - 8=30

12-(-8) = 20

-8 - +3 = -11

-8 - 10 = -18

1 is the answer +8-(-7) = 15 If you subtract a negative number, you sign is changed to addition. A positive minus a minus = a positive. (two minuses next to one another = a +) +8-(-7) =+8+7 =15

Positive 8 i am pretty sure.

It is not 4 it is 12.
