Negative numbers are smaller than 0, while positive numbers are greater than zero. Therefore, when ordering integers from greatest to least, positive numbers come first. Here is an example of a list of integers ordered from greatest to least: 99, 54, 26, 21, 14, 8, 2, -5, -14, -62, -87, -89, -92, -98

Negative first, then zero and then the positive.

by either putting the negative number first, or by putting the negative number in parentheses. Like this: -9*1=-9 1*(-9)=-9

Negative numbers do not show up much in the real world unless someone is trying to figure out a problem. The numbers were first discovered by the Indian civilization.

They can, but they are called imaginary numbers. This is because a "square" of something is the number that, when multiplied by itself, will equal the first number. A negative multiplied by a negative equals a positive, and positives can't turn into negatives on their own, so there are no square roots of negative numbers.

When you divide or multiply positive and negative numbers, you first do the division or multiplication as normal. The next step is to assess whether or not the answer will be negative or positive. If the two numbers of the question were the same (negative and negative or positive and positive) then the answer will be positive. If the two numbers in the question were different (one negative and one positive) then the answer will be negative. Thus, if you divide a negative number by a positive number, the result will be the same as normal division, but the answer will be negative.

Negative times negative equals positive. Positive times positive equals positive. Positive times negative equals negative. If you have more than two numbers, multiply the first two and then apply these rules to each successive number in turn.

Because two negative multiplied together equal a positive. So after the first multiplication we have a positive and a negative. When we multiply these we have a negative.

It depends on what numbers you are using so thats the first question.

Then you have a tie, for either first place or last place.

The difference between two negative numbers is negative if the second number ( the number you are subtracting from the first) is less in value than the first. For example (-3) - ( -2) = -3 + 2 = -1 (-3) - (-4) = -3 + 4 = + 1

To multiply two numbers with negatives involved you first multiply them normally. In this case 4x11 = 44. The next step is to assess whether the answer is positive or negative. In cases where there is one negative and one positive in the multiplication, the answer will be negative. Otherwise, the answer will be positive. In this case, both numbers were negative so the answer must be positive. Thus we have 44 and need to add negative 22. Adding negative numbers is the same as subtracting those numbers. Thus the question is 44-22 = 22. Therefore, negative 4 times negative 11 plus negative 22 is 22.

You could say the numbers 1 to 20 or even the numbers 0 to 19, but in reality there is no first number, as we have negative numbers. If you were saying it was not just limited to whole numbers, there would be even more. So mathematically there is no answer to the question.

Always connect the positive first if you connect the negative first you run the risk of completing a bad circuit when you connect the positive witch can lead to all sorts of problems.
