By the signs: 2+2(Add) 2-2(Subtract) +=add -=subtract

no

Because in alot of future jobs, you need to know how to add/subtract/divide/multiply negatves to positives and vice versa.

Either.

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

does how many mean add or subtract

1. Subtract 25 2. Then subtract 6 3. Then subtract 12 4. Then subtract 2 5. Then subtract 10 6. Then subtract 15 7. Then subtract 7 8. Then add 3 X 1/2 9. Then add 8

wich one

Either.

Depends. Add two positives and the sum is positive. Divide two positives and the quotient is positive. Multiply two positives and the product is positive. Subtract two positives and the difference could be positive, negative or zero. If the two numbers are the same, the difference is zero. If one number is larger than the other and we subtract the smaller from the larger, the difference is positive. Subtracting the larger number from the smaller one gives a negative difference.

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
