The result can be positive, negative, or zero.

a negative number

a negative number. think banking..... no money plus no money is ? Nothing (negative) "no money" would be zero, wouldn't it? Zero, or "nothing", is not negative. Still, a negative number plus a negative number is a negative number. minus X plus minus Y equals minus(X + Y).

this is a negative number -- a number below zero.

It can equal a positive, zero or a negative number.

The term "minus zero" is mathematically pointless, since zero is neither positive nor negative, being the exact point at which positive numbers meet negative numbers on the number line. Zero is just zero.

Minus is subtract or take away from negative is any number less than zero

The result of subtracting a negative number minus a negative number can be positive, or negative, depending on which of the numbers is larger. It can even be zero.

because both are minus and minus and minus is below zero, it would be 2 further below zero, -7-2=9

-3 - -3 = 0. The answer is zerobecause subtracting a negative from another negative number will cancel out its negative status.

Neither. It represents "nothing" Zero is neither a positive or negative number. It is just plain zero. So you don't have to stress on remembering if it's a plus or minus! :0) neither 0 is neither negative nor positive. Zero is neither positive nor negative.

Zero.

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

If you mean subtracting a negative number from another negative, then you simply add the second negative to the first number. For example: -3 - (-4)=1 -3 + 4 = 1 The double negative makes the equation an addition.

A negative number is a number less than zero (to the left of the number zero, on a standard number-line). It is written with a minus sign. For example, -5 is 5 less than zero.

zero

0 minus -9 is 9

No. A negative number is a number below zero, not zero itself.The number zero is neither negative nor positive.

negative

Negative ( - )

negative

NEGATIVE

1. a negative number has a minus(-) sign before the number. 2. A negative number is always below zero.

"minus zero" is the same as plus zero in that it makes no difference to the sum. So the answer is -3.

A number lower than zero. Also called a negative number. A "minus number" is the incorrect term for a negative number. Anegative number is a number that comes before zero (0) (ex: -1). It's value is less than that off zero and the larger the number is, the less the value becomes. Though it seems odd, -4 has more numerical value than -476 because -476 is farther away from zero.
