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 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 is the sum of -5 x -3?

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.


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.


When a positive and a negative number are added sometimes the sum is positive sometimes it's zero and sometimes it's negative explain why it happens?

If you add a positive number and a negative number, and the positive number is larger (in absolute value) than the negative number, then the sum is positive. For example, 7 + (-5) is the same thing as 7 - 5 which equals 2. Adding a negative number is equivalent to subtracting a positive number. If the two numbers are the same (in absolute value) then the sum is zero. You will be subtracting a number from itself. And finally, if the negative number is larger (in absolute value) than the positive number, then the sum is negative. In other words, you have more negative than positive so you end up with negative. It's pretty simple. An example would be, 3 + (-4) which equals 3 - 4 which is -1.


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)


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

When adding two integers how can you tell if a sum will be positive negative or zero without actually adding?

if your negative number is higher than your positive number your sum will be negative. if it is 0 i think that's pretty easy to find out yourself. ex: -5-3 = -8


Is the sum of a number and its opposite is always negative?

No, it would always equal 0. So if it was like 3 + -3 = 0


What is the sum of negative 3 and negative 12?

Is the sum of two numbers is always greater than either of the two numbers?

Consider 4 cases 1. The sum of any two positive numbers is clearly greater than either number. 2. The sum of any two negative numbers is LESS than either of the two numbers. ( (Look at -2+(-3)=-5 .) 3. The sum of any negative number and a positive number is always greater than the negative number but less than the positive number. (Look at -2+3=1, or -5+3=-2) 4. The sum of any number and 0 is that number so it is not greater. So it appears that the sum of any two numbers is greater than either of the two numbers when the two number are both positive.


What happens when you subract a positive number from a negative one?

You get a number that is "more negative" ie a number whose sign is negative but whose absolute value (or measure) is the sum of the absolute values of the two numbers (ie the values without the negative signs). eg -2 -(+3) = -(2+3) = -5


Subtracting a positive number from a negative number?

You may subtract a positive number from a negative number by simply just adding the two numbers, disregarding their signs, and giving the sum a negative sign. For example, if we have to subtract 3 from -5, then you just add 3 and 5 which gives you 8. The final answer must be -8.


What can you say about the sum of two negative integers?

3 plus negative 6?

The sum of 3 and -6 is -3.


Why does a negative plus a negative equal a negative?

A negative plus a negative equals a negative because the operation you're doing is equivalent to subtraction. If you wrote down a sum "negative 3 plus negative 7" it would look like this: -3+-7 which is the same as -3-7 Whenever you add a negative number you are actually taking more away, and this is why a negative plus a negative equals a negative - You start with a negative number, and are taking even more away, so you will only ever end up with a negative number.


In subtraction the minuend is the smaller number?

Not necessarily. In any subtraction sum, for example, 8 - 3 = 5, the minuend is the first number of the sum. The second number of the sum is called the subtrahend, and the third number is called the difference.The minuend could be the smaller number of the sum, for example, 2 - 3 = -1, however, in this case, the difference will always be a negative result.
