two negatives makes a positive, meaning you add. i.e. 2 - -2 = 2+2 = 4
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.
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.
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
By the signs: 2+2(Add) 2-2(Subtract) +=add -=subtract
2 negatives make a positive
add 5 / subtract 7 (the following numbers will include negatives: -1, 4, -3, 2, -5. 0)
You get a negative
does how many mean add or subtract
I feel that two negatives are positive because you add* your two negative integers* together, you would be doing this: -+- (negative + negative) so the response is, is that if two integers where both negative, you would add, just like if there were two positives, you would add, but not if you have different signs. (positive+negative) you would subtract. Just as the same with negative + positive. [REVIEW: if the sign is the same, add, if the sign is different, you subtract.] *=you may not always add *=integers- a fancy word for numbers.
When you have 2 positives you add them.
Adding negatives? You get a negative. But if you multiply/divide 2 negatives, that's a positive.
deposit = add withdraw = subtract
-1,-2,+2,-4,+4,-5,+5, +0. the sequence is subtract twice, add once, subtract again, add, then subtract, then add twice.
A double minus becomes a plus as for example -2--5 = 3 but -2-5 = -7
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.
you got none
same signs add and keep, opposite signs subtract take the sign of the larger number, and then you'll be exsact!!! Hope I helped!!! :)
To find the larger side you add the 2 legs together, for the smaller sides you subtract the other 2 legs :)
You click on the positive numbers and join them to make 5. Also adding negatives if you need to subtract. Example: (+2) + (+2) + (+2) = (+6), so add (-1) so that it equals exactly positive 5. Hope this helps!!!
IT looks like the operations is "add 4 subtract 3, add 5 subtract 2, add 6...". So the next step would be to subtract one. That would make the next number 11.
Subtract the numerator Subtract or add the numerator Subtract or add the numerator ex: 3/4-1/4=2/4 or 1/2 ex: 5/8 + 1/8= 6/8 or 3/4
