Q: When you subtract a positive integer by a positive integer do you get a positive integer?

Write your answer...

yes

subtract the negative from the positive

Not necessarily, for example: If you subtract 3 from 4, then you get +1. But if you subtract 4 from 3, you get -1. The answer will always be an integer, but you cannot make a general statement about the sign, without knowing more information.

to subtract a positive integer :move LEFT. The answer will get smaller

You will get a positive integer. If you subtract a negative number, you will be adding it. I think of it like 2 minuses equals a plus. :P

-3

Yes because you are always adding.

It can be a negative or positive fraction, a negative or positive integer, or zero.

less than

Yes, because subtrating a negative number is the same thing as adding a positive number.

The same as adding a positive one.

To subtract a negative number is equivalent to adding a positive number. Two negatives multiplied make a positive.

Subtract any POSITIVE integer from -2, and you get an integer that is smaller.

All positive integers are all greater than negative integers.

It is a positive integer.It is a positive integer.It is a positive integer.It is a positive integer.

The answer is a negative or positive integer with one or two digits.

That would be false. When you subtract two positive numbers, you only go into negatives if the number you are subtracting is greater than the number it's being subtracted from. 3 - 2 = 1 2 - 3 = -1

When subtracting negative integers, one can relate it to the overall attitude of a room. If a room contains a number of people of positive and negative attitude you can get rid of people (or subtract people) with negative attitudes to make the overall attitude of the room more positive. If you subtract a negative integer it makes it positive.

The absoluate value of a positive integer is the integer itself.The absoluate value of a positive integer is the integer itself.The absoluate value of a positive integer is the integer itself.The absoluate value of a positive integer is the integer itself.

The product would be a positive integer.

The resulting integer is positive seen as they're both positive.

Rule: The sum of two negative integers is a negative integer.Rule: The sum of two positive integers is a positive integer.Procedure: To add a positive and a negative integer (or a negative and a positive integer), follow these steps:1. Find the absolute value of each integer.2. Subtract the smaller number from the larger number you get in Step 1.3. The result from Step 2 takes the sign of the integer with the greater absolute value.

When they are added together and the absolute value of the positive integer is bigger than the absolute value of the negative integer or when the negative integer is subtracted from the positive integer.

The sum of a positive integer and a negative integer is positive when the positive integer is greater. For example: 9 + (-5) = 4 In this case, the positive integer 9 is greater than the negative integer 5. Therefore, the sum is positive.

Any positive integer plus any negative integer will always equal an integer. The results will be either a positive integer, a negative integer or zero.it depends which is bigger. if the positive integer is bigger the answer will be positive. and if the negative integer is bigger the answer will be negative.
