Best Answer

Subtracting:

Positive - Negative = Positive

Negative - Positive = Negative

No that is not the way it goes. It is positive+negetive=either counting on which integer is bigger

negative+negative=positive

positive+positive=positive

positive x negetive=negative

negative x postitve= negative

negative/positive=negative

positive/negative=negetive

thanks

The top is right though because subtracting a negative is like adding so you could never get a negative and subtracting from a positive from negative will always be a negative. The question was for integers with different signs so you don't need to do "positive + positive"

When dividing numbers that are different the answer will be negative.

It's a positive number. Here's the rule: In multiplication and division . . . -- If both numbers have the same sign, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is positive. -- If the two numbers have different signs, then the result of multiplying or dividing them is negative.

if the signs are different then u put the larger sing down then u subtract if if the signs are the same then u put the same sign down then u add

see the signs if is negative or possitive

The product of two integers will be: * Zero, if one factor, or both, are zero. * Positive, if both factors have the same sign (both positive, or both negative) * Negative, if the two factors have different signs. Actually, these rules apply to all real numbers, not just to integers.

Ignore the signs and subtract the smaller number from the larger one.

for integers with tow different signs, it will always be negative in multiplying and division. for adding and subtracting, the sign is for the bigger number.

-You must memorize -To add 2 integers with different signs, find the difference of their absolute value -To subtract an integer, add it's opposite

Adding two numbers with different signs means subtracting the two absolute integers (without sign) and vice versa.

-- write the difference between the integers without regard to their signs -- give the difference the same sign as the larger of the two integers

if the signs are the same you must add its opposite.

They become positive integers for instance - - 2 = 2

The sum or difference will take the sign of whichever number is larger (disregarding the signs). -6 + 8 = 2 6 + -8 = -2 8 - (-6) = 14 -8 - 6 = -14

yes

Adding integers, if they have the same sign, add their absolute values and keep the same sign. Subtracting, change the sign of the 2nd number and the add using rules of addition. Multiplying and dividing, Divide the absolute values, if the signs are the same the answer is positive, if the signs are different the answer is negative.

signs are different.... Find the difference.... KEEP THE LARGER SIGN signs are the same... COMBINE AND KEEP THE SIGN
