0when you add two positive integers the answer is always positive when you add two negative integers the answer is positive when you add one negative and on positive integer, the answer is negative subtracting two negative numbers gets a negative answer subtracting two positive numbers- the answer depends subtracting a negative and positive number- the answer depends, the positive number would have to be bigger than the negative to achieve a negative number, and if the positive number is less, than the answer is still negative

Subtracting: Positive - Negative = Positive Negative - Positive = Negative No that is not the way it goes. It is positive+negetive=either counting on which integer is bigger negative+negative=positive positive+positive=positive positive x negetive=negative negative x postitve= negative negative/positive=negative positive/negative=negetive thanks The top is right though because subtracting a negative is like adding so you could never get a negative and subtracting from a positive from negative will always be a negative. The question was for integers with different signs so you don't need to do "positive + positive"

equivalent to subtracting a negative

It is a double negative, subtracting is essentially adding a negative, therefore subtracting would be a negative negative number, which would be a positive, my mom helped me remember it by thinking if a bad thing happened to a bad person, it would be good, if a good thing happened to a good person it would be good, if a bad thing happened to a good person it would be bad, ect.

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

Subtracting a negative is like adding a positive; the result will be positive.

Adding a negative amount is equivalent to subtracting a positive amount.

The rule for subtracting negative numbers is 'when you are subtracting a negative number from a positive or negative, you must always add it.'Example: 3--3 = 3+3 = 6

Positive. A negative number added to a positive would reduce the original to a smaller positive, to zero, or to a negative depending on their relative values but subtracting a negative number from a positive number will always increase the value of the positive.

Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3

Subtracting two positive fractional numbers, or adding one positive and one negative integer.

adding or subtracting them, that would depend on the magnitude of the values; multiplying or dividing would yield a negative product or quotient

A negative plus a negative is a negative. It's like subtracting a positive number from a negative number, the answer isn't going to be positive.

Subtracting a negative is the same as subtracting the corresponding positive, e.g. 5 - (-2) = 5 + 2.

It is the same as subtracting a positive.

The sign of the answer will always be a positive number because subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive (

"No. For instance -19 - 17 = -36. Not -2 as it may seem.-5 - 34 = -39. Even though a quick glance would make it seem to be 29"That is wrong... you are subtracting a positive from a negative the question consists of subtracting a positive from a negative. 15 {a positive} - (-5) {a negative} = 20 you minus the negative sign on the -5 to make +5 but we write it just as 5.Anyways to answer the original question. Yes Subtracting a number is the same as adding it's opposite, therefore adding a positive to a positive will always result in a positive.

-18. Subtracting a positive number has the same effect as adding a negative.

Subtracting a positive from a negative. You would write (this is an example) : -7-(+9)=-16 You don't necessarily have to put the parentheses and the positive sign, though sometimes it may be required.

If you subtract a negative from a positive, add both of their absolute values. If you subtract a positive from a negative, add both of their absolute values and multiply by negative one.

It depends on what you are doing to the two identical numbers. If you are multiplying them, it becomes a negative. If you are dividing them, it becomes a negative. If you are adding them, it will always be zero (e.g., 2+ -2 = 0, etc.). There are two ways to subtract. If you are subtracting a positive from a negative, the number remains negative. If you are subtracting a negative from a positive, or a negative from a negative, the negative becomes a positive and you just add from there.
