Opposite of positive number will always be a negative number. The total of the two has to be zero as per the definition. So the zero does not have the opposite number.

0Yes, a negative number subtracted from a positive number will always be positive. Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the opposite of the negative number. The opposite of a negative number is always positive. A positive number plus a positive number is always positive.

The opposite of a number depends on what the relevant operation is. For addition or multiplication - the two common operators - the answer to the question depends on what the first number is.

Absolute value is always the opposite of the number.

The [multiplicative] opposite of -2 is -0.5, which is negative.

Sometimes. Also, when depends on what you mean by "opposite": the additive inverse or the multiplicative inverse.

When you put them opposite each other on the number line the negatives are opposite to the positives.

The answer will always be Negative in Sign. If they are the same sign, it will always be Positive in Sign.

never a negative number * * * * * ... true if, by opposite, you mean the additive inverse. However, the multplicative inverse is also an opposite. And the multiplicative inverse of a negative number is always negative.

The absolute value is always positive.

Sometimes.* If "n" is positive, "-n" is negative. * If "n" is negative, "-n" is positive. * If "n" is zero, "-n" is also zesro.

when you are dividing 2 numbers with the same sign the answer is ALWAYS positive but when you are dividing 2 number with opposite signs the answer is ALWAYS negitive. the same is true with multiplication also

Remember that when two numbers with the same sign are multiplied,their product is always positive.

The answer depends on whether you mean additive opposite (TRUE) or multiplicative opposite (FALSE).

An integer is just a whole number, excluding zero. Any positive integer will always have an opposite just by placing a negative sign in front of the positive integer. You can also say that any negative whole number is an integer.

The square of a number is always two numbers multiplied together. A positive times a positive is always positive, and a negative times a negative is always positive.

opposites somehow like a positive number is the opposite of a negative and a negative number is the opposite of a positive

A positive number times a positive number will always get you a positive number A negative number times a negative number will always get you a positive number (same signs will get you a positive number) but A positive number times a negative number will always get you a negative number or A negative number times a positive number will always get you a negative number (different signs will get you a negative number)

it's only negative if it's being multiplied by a positive number. If it's being multiplied by another negative number than it will be positive.

Any positive numbers opposite is the same number just as a negative.

If you are taking the absolute value of a negative number, that number will always be positive. So the opposite of the absolute value of -7 would be -7.

The product of two numbers with opposite signs is always negative.

Yes, and the opposite holds true as well.

A positive number times a positive number is always positive. A negative number times a negative number is always positive. Therefore, any square number will be positive. Any number to the fourth power (a square times a square) will always be positive. And so on.

It will always be a positive number.

Are you serious? A positive number.
