a negative subtracted by a positive will always equal a negative.

Well, a positive number minus a greater positive number equals a negative number. But it's impossible for a negative number to be subtracted from any number.

negative number subtracted FROM a negative number will be negative

Always yes

One (negative) is preceded by a - sign and the other (positive) is not. Negative integers have values less than zero, whereas positive integers have values greater than zero. If a positive and negative integer are made up of the same digits and in the same order (e.g., 2 and -2, or 896 and -896), then when added together they will equal zero. If, however, one is subtracted from the other, then they will equal twice the number from which the other is subtracted.

If the integer subtracted is smaller than or equal to the first integer, then the answer is positive. Otherwise, if the integer subtracted is larger, then the answer is negative.

Negative.

A negative divided by a negative is a positive.

When they are added together and the absolute value of the positive integer is bigger than the absolute value of the negative integer or when the negative integer is subtracted from the positive integer.

Lets say you are in debt to a bank and have a negative balance. If I subtract that balance (take the negative balance off you) then you have gained money. That is the easiest way to imagine it. I do understand mathematical concepts are not alwys easy to understand.

It can. Negative 2 minus negative 1 = negative 1. However, it sometimes might be positive. Negative 5 minus negative 16 = positive 11. If you have two equal negative variables, such as -a - -a, you will get -2a. -2a may still be positive though, if a is a negative number. An example of having two unequal negative numbers is -a - -b, which is -a + b. That may be positive or negative depending on what a and b are equal to.

The numbers are 26 and -14

A negative number minus a positive number will always be a negative number.

A positive number divided by a negative number equals a negative number.

That is correct. If you subtract a positive number from a negative number, your result is negative.

A negative number TIMES a positive number will equal a negative number. A negative number DIVIDED BY a positive number (or vice versa) will equal a negative number. With addition and subtraction, it all depends on what the numbers are.

A positive number. Positive Number x Positive Number = Positive Number Positive Number x Negative Number = Negative Number Negative Number x Negative Number = Positive Number

Negative answer if the negative number is bigger. Positive answer if the positive number is bigger.

It could equal both a negagtive number or a positive number. To get a definite positive or negative you times or divide. Well in addition and subtraction negative plus a negative equals a bigger negative. Kinda like -4+-4 =-8, but in multiplication and division 2 negatives equal a positive. -2 times-2 =positive 4.
