Is the sum of a positive number and negative number always a negative number?

No. In the case of 5 + (-3), for example, the positive number 2 is the solution. The sum would only be negative if the absolute value of the negative number is greater than the positive number.


Why is the sum of a positive integer and a negative integer is always negative?

It isn't always negative. ... for example: -5 + 12 = 7 (a positive number) -5 + 2 = -3 (a negative number) -5 + 5 = 0 (neither negative nor positive) If the negative number has greater magnitude than the positive number, the sum will be negative If the positive number has greater magnitude than the negative number, the sum will be positive If the negative and positive numbers have the same magnitude, the sum will be zero.


Why does adding a negative number to another negative number always gives a negative sum?

The answer is in the question... You are "adding" a negative number to another negative number hence you will get a negative number! Now if you were subtracting a negative number from a negative number, the negatives will cancel out ex:subtracting> -5-(-3)=-2 .........adding>-5+(-3)=-8


What does a positive number added by a negative number equal?

The sum of a positive number and a negative number can be either negative or positive. 9 + -3 = 6 9 + -13 = -4


Is the sum of a negative number and a positive number equal to the sum of their absolute values?

No. The sum of a negative number and a positive number has the absolute value of their difference and the sign of whichever of them was bigger - in absolute terms. So -3 + 4 = +1 (diff between 3 and 4 is 1, and the bigger number, 4, is positive) -3 + 3 = 0 (diff between 3 and 3 is 0, the sign for zero does not matter) -3 + 2 = -1 (diff between 3 and 2 is 1, and the bigger number, 3, is negative)


When multiplying a negative number by positive number by a positive you get a?

A negative number e.g 3 times -4 = -12 Do the normal sum then add in the minus (when timing) :)


How can you decide if the sum of two numbers is positive negative or zero without actually calculating the sum?

The sum of two positive numbers is always positive, and the sum of two negatives is always negative. If you have a positive and a negative number, there sum can be either, so look at the absolute values to decide. For example -3+2=-1. Since all you care about is the sign, look at the absolute value. If the negative number has a greater absolute value, the sum is negative and if the positive number's absolute value, which is the number itself, is bigger, the sum is positive. If the absolute values are equal, the sum is 0.
