A negative number closest to zero is greater 2-3 = negative 1 2-5 = negative 3 negative 1 is bigger because it is closer to zero
If the negative number is bigger then the answer will be negative If the bigger number is positive then the answer will be positive. All you do is subtract the two numbers and take the sign of the bigger number Ex (+2)+(-7)=(-5)
no not always. as long as the first number is bigger than the second number. if it is not, the answer is negative. 7-5=2 5-7= -2
Subtracting from a negative number would make the number a bigger negative. For example. If we have the number -10. And are told to subtract 5 from -10. We have -10 - 5 = -15.
yes* * * * *Wrong!The answer is that it depends! It depends on the relative magnitudes of the two numbers.If the magnitude of the first number is bigger, the answer is negative,If the magnitude of the two numbers is the same, the answer is zero,If the magnitude of the first number is smaller, the answer is positive.For example,-5 - (-2) = -3-5 - (-5) = 0-5 - (-7) = +2
well it depends if the negative is bigger than the positive or viseversa. lets say you have -5+7 it would equal 2. if it was -7+5 it would equal -2. In short, a positive number plus a negative number is the same thing as a positive number minus another positive number. Example: 3 + (-2) = 1 3 - 2 = 1
Negatives and subtraction go hand - in - hand For Example, - 5 + 3 = - 2 could be also seen like this. 3 - 5 = = -2 Your answer will be negative if the number with the negative sign is bigger than the number with the positive term. If both numbers are negative then you add them up as normal numbers like positive and just put a negative before the total. - 5 - 5 = - 10 - 5 + (- 5) = -10
Depends. If you are subtracting a bigger number from a smaller number, such as 3 - 5, you will get a negative result, -2. If you are subtracting a smaller number from a bigger number, such as 12 - 3 you will get a positive result, 9.
No a negative plus a negative is not a positive answer. example. -5+-2=-7 but if you are subtracting a negative number from a negative, then the second negative number would become a positive. example. -5 - -2= -5+2= =-3
The way you add a negative number to a positive number is very simple to learn. First you need to check which number is bigger, the negative or the positive. Then you subtract the smaller number from the bigger number. Whichever number is bigger is the sign you keep. If the bigger number was positive your going to put a + in front of the answer. If its negative your going to put a minus sign in front .Here's an example: -5 + +9 = +4
Subtracting a negative number has the same effect as adding a positive number, the two negative actions cancel each other out. Therefore, for example, 5 - (-5) is the same as 5 + 5 = 10.
3 negative 5 and 3 equals negative 2 easy question (-5) + 3 = (-2)
Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding.2--5 = 2+5 = 7
Negative 2 does not correspond to 5 in any way. Negative 5 might be seen as a mirror image of 5 on the number line, but negative 2 has no correlation to 5.
-1.5, -pi, -2/5
A bigger negative number. For example: -1 + -5= -6
5^-2 can be expressed as; 1/5^2 = 1/25 positive
It can have any sign. For example, -3 - (-1) = -3 + 1 = -2 the answer is negative. -3 - (-3) = -3 + 3 = 0 the answer is zero. -3 - (-5) = -3 + 5 = 2 the answer is positive. If the magnitude of the second negative  is smaller than the magnitude of the first , the answer is negative. If the magnitudes are equal, the answer is zero If the magnitude of the second number  is bigger than the magnitude of the first , the answer is positive.
It can be positive, negative, or zero, depending what numbers you add. for example, -5 + 3=-2 but -3 +5=+2
Let us see what happens if you times by, say, 2 and 5: If the "number less than 1" is in fact less than -1 (eg -4), then the answer will be negative and the absolute value of your answer will be bigger than the number you are timesing by: 2*(-4) = -8 and 5*(-4) = -20 [8 is bigger than 2, 20 is bigger than 5] If the number is -1, then timesing it simply makes it negative. 2*(-1) = -2 and 5*(-1) = -5 If the number is between -1 and 0 (eg -0.6), you will get a negative number that is smaller than whatever you are timesing by: 2*(-0.6) = -1.2 and 5*(-0.6) = -3.0 [1.2 is smaller than 2, 3 is smaller than 5] If the number is 0, the answer is 0. If the number is between 0 and 1 (eg 0.6), you will get a number that is smaller than whatever you are timesing by: 2*(0.6) = 1.2 and 5*(0.6) = 3.0 [1.2 is smaller than 2, 3 is smaller than 5] And that covers all possible numbers smaller than 1.
Not sure if you want just a positive and a negative integer, added or more info.2 positive integers a & b (easiest)a + b the result is positive.2 negative integers a & bAdd the magnitude of a and magnitude of b, the result is negative.Example -2 + -5 = -(2+5) = -(7) = -7a is positive, b is negative, take the difference of the magnitudes, thenif |a| (magnitude of a) greater than |b| (magnitude of b), the result is positive.if |a| (magnitude of a) less than |b| (magnitude of b), the result is negative.Example: 2 + -5 (the difference of magnitudes is 5-2 = 3The negative number has a bigger magnitude, so the answer is negative: -3-2 + 5The difference is still 3, but the positive number has bigger magnitude,so the result is positive: +3
yes example: -10 / 5 = -2
What is 2-5? Without negative numbers, you have no answer. ■
The result can be negative, zero or positive. (-5) - (-3) = -5 + 3 = -2 (-5) - (-5) = -5 + 5 = 0 (-5) - (-9) = -5 + 9 = 4
Negative. Adding a negative is the same as subtracting a positive. -2 + -3= -2 - 3= -5, not 1
