To subtract a negative number is equivalent to adding a positive number. Two negatives multiplied make a positive.
When you subtract one number from another, the result is called the difference. What does your question mean? If by "when two whole numbers are subtracted" you mean that you subtract one whole number from the minuend, and then you subtract another whole number from the difference, then the answer you get is another difference. In effect, you have one minuend and two subtrahends.
Zero (0) is a number, just like all other numbers. So in that sense, there is no difference. When you subtract zero (0) from another number, you have the original number.
The difference is then obtained
The number you get when you subtract a number from another number.
The resulting number is called the difference.
When one number is subtracted from another number, the result is known as the difference.
When you subtract two numbers, the answer is called the difference.
take away (a number or amount) from another to calculate the difference
When you subtract one number from another you get the difference.You just said it; sum.
The answer when subtracting one number from another is called a difference. When subtracting one fraction from another, it is still called a difference.
It is called the difference.
In the same way that you would answer a fraction subtract another fraction. The result could be either positive or negative, just as is the case with negative whole numbers.
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
Subtract one number away from another number. For instance: 45 - 35 = 10 (so the difference is 10).
A positive plus a positive will equal a positive. However a negative minus a negative will not equal a negative. It will equal a positive.
The compare and subtract instructions in the 8085 both subtract one operand from another, and set flags accordingly. The subtract instruction stores the result in the accumulator, while the compare instruction does not - except for the flags, the compare instruction "throws" the result away.
It's either positive or negative depending on the number that is greater than the second number. Example subtract 10 from 20 the answer is 10. 20 as being the greater than 10. Another example subtract 5 from -10 the answer is -15. -10 as being the greater than 5. Take note when subtracting positive and negative integers you change the sign of the subtrahend.
They mean that if you subtract one of the two digit numbers from another then that is the difference. The numbers in the question are usually smallest first so you can't subtract like that. In these questions you may change the order of the numbers.
another word is " subtract "
1 is the answer +8-(-7) = 15 If you subtract a negative number, you sign is changed to addition. A positive minus a minus = a positive. (two minuses next to one another = a +) +8-(-7) =+8+7 =15
always a negative number. just think about going backwards on a number line.
If the two signs are next to one another then the minus sign takes precedence and you subtract.So 1 + -2 = 1 - 2 = -1Note: This is the same as for "normal" subtractions. Consider 2 - 1. We all know that this is 1. But, as both 1 & 2 are positive numbers, we could rewrite 2 - 1 as "+2 - +1". The minus sign "wins out" and we subtract.
