Simple math rules state that a negative times a negative equals a positive!
Just bc its math
Yes, when a positive is divided by a negative, it is negative. ex: 4/-2 would equal -2. It takes two negatives to make a positive in math when you are multiplying or dividing.
A negative subracting a positive will end up as a negative. Explanation: If you have 3 negatives, you cannnot take 3 positives from it, so you need to add 3 zeros, (which are both negative and positive), to the negative side. The number zero means nothing, so it will not alter the question. KEY _ =negative + =positive _+ =zero _ _ _ needs _+ _+ _+ to subract + + + Once you take the 3 positives from the negative side, you will be left with 6 negatives _ _ _ _+_+_+ minus + + + leaves you with _ _ _ _ _ _ *NOTE* You may be thinking, "But the zero did count! It's symbol left a mark on the answer!". Wrong. Zero in math means nothing, and that is how it will stay. You only needed it because it had the positive sign you were looking for. But because it is both positive and negative, you will be left with a negative when you take away the positive, and a positive when you take away the negative. This is why a positive subracting a negative will equal a negative.
positive is to add and negative is to subtract in math
one remember it this way: if something good happens to someone good, it's good (positive x positive = positive) if something bad happens to someone good, it's bad (positive x negative = negative) and finally, if something bad happens to someone bad, it's good (negative x negative = positive). but really, just ask your math teacher and get a tutor if you need to. best of luck in your studies.
A negative times a negative equals a positive A negative times a positive equals a negative A positive times a positive equals a positive
It is a rule in math!
i think so because in math class two negatives equal a positive.
In math, a positive is a number greater then zero, and a negative number is less than zero.
In Math, a negative can be represented with -. A positive can be represented with +, or just without a -.
negative. why is this question in math when it should be in chemistry?
In math, positive means greater than zero, and negative means less than zero.
Eight one take away negative sixty seven equals negative fourteen. This is a math problem.
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.
As this looks like a homework question I will tell you only the rule, not the specific answer. Otherwise it's cheating! A - (-B) = A + B. This applies too if A is negative. Or in words a doubled negative become positive.
Because when there is a positive and a negative in the same problem, it gives you a negative. An easy way to solve problems like that is if there is an odd number of negative signs, then your answer is going to be negative. If there is an even number of negative signs, then your answer is going to be positive. (no matter if there is a positive sign in a math problem).
you put this in math you idiot
its a math problem
It depends on what you do with the negative and positive. If you multiply or divide a positive number and a negative number, then the answer is negative. If you add or subtract a positive number and a negative number, the answer could be negative or positive depending on the numbers involved. If you put a negative sign in front of a positive number, the result is a negative number. If you put a positive sign in front of a negative number (like +(-7)), the result is still negative.
In math, a product is the result of multiplying. Multiplication is distributive over positive and negative numbers, which means, when a negative number is multiplied by a positive number, it always yields a negative result.
When it comes to numbers (this question was asked in the "Math and Arithmetic" category), adding a negative number to a positive number always equals a negative number.
Negative - a positive would make it keep it change it change it so the problem would look like this -8 + -2 = -6, Im in honors math just to let you know, with all the subtraction problems, if they are integers,you do keep it change it change it keep the first digit and don't do anything to it change the subtraction sign to an addition sign and if the next integer is positive make it a negative if it is a negative make it a positive.
Zero is a number that is not effected by positive or negative signs.
