Yes. When you multiply two negative numbers, the answer is positive.

6 and -5

5 and 12

No

1*(-5) 5*(-1) Those are the only two whole number equations that equal (-5). If you are looking for more than just whole numbers any two numbers you can multiply to equal positive 5, if you make one value negative your product will become negative. (i.e. 2*2.5=5 | (-2)*2.5=(-5))

A bigger negative number. For example: -1 + -5= -6

No two whole numbers satisfy these parameters. However, -11.787088*6.787088=-80 (within 10-5) and -11.787088+6.787088=-5

No. They are different numbers, so they are not equal.

They do not always. The sum of two negative numbers is negative.

-5 - 5sqrt(2) and 5 - 5sqrt(2)

no it doesnt. two negative numbers equal a negative number. two postivie numbers equal a positive number. one negative and one positive number equal a negative number.

To solve the problem 5 - -6, think of it as 5 + 6. You can do this because two negative numbers equal as positive number, and similarly two negative signs equal a positive. Therefore 5 --6 is 11.

yes they do

(-5)2 = 25. This is because multiplying two negative numbers together always leads to a positive number. Think about it like taking a negative amount of negative numbers, which switches them over to positive numbers. -52 = -25, because you are not multiplying negative 5 by negative 5, you are multiplying 5 by 5, and then multiplying that value by negative 1.

Zero.

It can be positive, negative, or zero, depending what numbers you add. for example, -5 + 3=-2 but -3 +5=+2

negative time negative equal positive

The factor pairs of 42 are (42,1)(21,2)(14,3)(7,6) Even considering their negative counterparts, none of them add up to -5.

3, -15

No. Each number is equal to itself, and to no other number. Positive and negative numbers are NOT the same thing.

Not necessarily. Examples: -1 - (-5) = -1 + 5 = 4, which is positive, but -10 - (-3) = -10 + 3 = -7, a negative. So it depends on the numbers used.
