A negative and a negative can yield a positive result in some cases.
Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding its negative value, which is positive. So if the subtracted number is larger in value, the answer will be positive.
(-4) - (-3) = (-4) + 3 = (-1) * the subtracted number was not large enough
(-4) - (-8) = (-4) + 8 = 4 *the subtracted number was large enough to yield a positive
Multiplication and Division
Whenever a negative number and a negative number are multiplied or divided, the negative signs "cancel out" and the result is positive.
(-2) x (-3) = 6
(-6) / (-3) = 2
A multiplication or division involving one negative and one positive will, however, have a negative result.
Negative times negative equals positive.
Yes. A negative subtracted by a negative is a positive. Just remember that two like signs become a positive sign, and two unlike signs become a negative sign.
When we lose something negative you become positive.
When you lose something positive you become negative.
You divide the negative number by a positive number for it to stay positive. And you divide the negative number by a negative number for it to become positive.
When you multiply any number by a negative number you reverse its sign. So positive numbers become negative, and negative numbers become positive. That is the meaning of negative multiplication; it is reversal. This is similar to the way that adding a negative number has the same effect as subtracting a positive number. Negative is the opposite of positive.
The atom become negative - anion.
2 negatives equal a positive or if you multiply a negative by a positive it is larger negative if you multiply a negative and a negative it become positive because doing something negative times is getting bigger
the answer could be negative or positive depending on whether the negative number you're adding is bigger than the positive number
To become more stable: positive+negative=neutral. Neutral is more stable than positive and/or negative.
when an atom loose electron it become negative ion and when it gains electron it become positive ion
All atoms become positive ions when they lose electrons, and negative when they gain electrons.
It will become a positive number.
The negative consequences are that the natural world become reduced. The positive consequences are that the technological advances become increased.
It depends on what you do with the negative and positive. If you multiply or divide a positive number and a negative number, then the answer is negative. If you add or subtract a positive number and a negative number, the answer could be negative or positive depending on the numbers involved. If you put a negative sign in front of a positive number, the result is a negative number. If you put a positive sign in front of a negative number (like +(-7)), the result is still negative.
non metals become negative ions
Positive + Negative = Negative Negative + Negative = Positive Positive + Positive = Positive Negative + Positive = Negative
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
The rules for the sign (positive or negative) of the result of a multiplication is the same as division. For multiplication: Positive * Positive --> Positive Positive * Negative --> Negative Negative * Positive --> Negative Negative * Negative --> Positive For division: Positive / Positive --> Positive Positive / Negative --> Negative Negative / Positive --> Negative Negative / Negative --> Positive
Negatives and Positives Positive + Positive = Positive Negative + Negative = Positive Negative + Positive = Negative Positive + Negative = Negative
Negative (Fl-) All the halogens become negative ions.
