two negatives makes a positive, meaning you add. i.e. 2 - -2 = 2+2 = 4

You get a negative

Either.

Adding negatives? You get a negative. But if you multiply/divide 2 negatives, that's a positive.

When you have two negatives, you add the magnitudes, but since, you have both negatives, the direction of the resultant magnitude is along the negative direction, so you add the magnitude and put the negative sign.

No 2 negatives do not equal a positive because for example. : -2 + -2 = -4. You can see that when you add these 2 negative numbers right here they equal to another negative number.

+ add + = - - Add - = + + add - = -

diamond problem ? :) that would be impossible without any negatives.

Never, it will always be negative, regardless the numbers.

Yes.

Multiplying and dividing two negatives does equal a positive. Adding two negatives equals a negative, but subtracting two negatives may or may not equal a positive. Ex. -2 * -4 = 8 -10/-2 = 5 -2+ -4 = -6 -4- -2 = -2 -2- -4 = 2

Van der zee would retouch negatives to straighten teeth, add jewelry, or fill in a baldspot ect. His tools were a knife to scrape away silver from prints and negatives, ink to add pigment to prints and negatives.

The way you have worded your question is a bit tricky.How do you add negatives? - by adding the numbers themselves and making the answer negative.If this is not your question, please reword it and re-ask it. :-)

You add the biggest number and your smallest number but it gets confusing with negatives. but negatives are smaller then positives like........ 61 29 -12 -45 then you add.... 61 + -45

two negatives make a larger negative -9+ -2= -11 -4+ -34= -38

a positive

-2

Yes, when multiplying or dividing two negatives the result is a positive number.

When you multiply two negatives the negatives cancel one and other out.

If two negaitve signs occur next to each other in an equation, as in 4 -(-2) then the two negatives becomes a positive and you add the two to get 6. Otherwise, you just do what the equation states: -5 + 3 you add; =-2. -5 - 3 you subtract; = -8

You add them normally but make sure the answer is negative for those negative numbers are only being ADDED not MULTIPLIED. When you multiply 2 negative numbers, the answer becomes positive. -2 + -2 = -4 -2 x -2 = 4 -5 + -7 = -12 -5 x -7 = 35

Adding and subtracting negatives and positives -6+6=0 -6+-6=-12 -6+8=2 8+-7+14+-6=9 split them and do them by problem. Dividing fractions 24%-3=-8 if they are both negatives then its a positive then if there is a negative its a negative.

On the number line if you subtract a positive you move left. If you add a positive you move right. If add a negative you move left. If you subtract a negative you move right. That is just how I learned it. I don't know a wordy explanation.

add 5 / subtract 7 (the following numbers will include negatives: -1, 4, -3, 2, -5. 0)

Never.
