The answer is negative 7 stupid.

Positive 8.

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

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

Positive 8 i am pretty sure.

(-7) - (+8) = -7 -8 = -15

-1

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.

Negative plus Negative would equal positive in Maths. like this: -7 + -8 = 1 Because you're adding a minus It Will Not Equal a Positive it will Equal a Negative. -7+-8= -15. Because you are adding a negative to another negative. If the problem was -7+8= 1. Because you are taking seven out of that eight. If It were to be multiplication than a negative TIMES a negative would have been a positive(-8 x -7=56). And a negative TIMES a positive would be a negative (-8 x 7=-56).

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

When you subtract a negative from a positive, its like adding a positive. 8-(-3) is the same as 8+3. Always remember, subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive.

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

The last answer was wrong... -7-8 is -15

Positive 8.... is that right?

-7+8 is a positive number that equals 1, but -78 is a negative number because it has a negative sign.

-2 minus 8 is -10.

-12

11.

-10

8 :)

22 - - 8=30

12-(-8) = 20

-8 - +3 = -11

-8 - 10 = -18
