The answer to a problem that has a negative number added to a negative number would be negative.It would be a negative

a proper fraction, a decimal or a negative number.

it's rational... take any whole number and put it over a one (a fraction with one as the denominator)... voila! it's a rational number.. -1 would be -1/1

The number .475 repeated as a fraction would be 475/999.

a negative number. think banking..... no money plus no money is ? Nothing (negative) "no money" would be zero, wouldn't it? Zero, or "nothing", is not negative. Still, a negative number plus a negative number is a negative number. minus X plus minus Y equals minus(X + Y).

Using the same principles as multiplying a negative whole number by a positive whole number, where the result would be a negative, the product of a (positive) fraction and a negative whole number would equal the product of the two, with the minus sign included. For example, 1/2 x -4 = -2. The same rule can be applied the other way around, multiplying a negative fraction by a positive number would produce the same result.

Reduce it as you would normally, negative fractions are no different to positive fractions. Also, it doesn't matter which of the numerator or denominator are negative, as long as when it is reduced the fraction is negative overall.

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.

like you would with a regular faction. just keep the negative at the top once you have simlified it

Deduct negative from positive. for example 2 1/4 +-2=1/4.

On a number line, the positive numbers extend to the right of zero, and the negative numbers extend to the left of zero. So -3.4 is 3.4 to the left of zero.

The negative reciprocal of any gradient gives the gradient of the line perpendicular to it. If you had a line of gradient 2, the negative reciprocal would be -1/2 Just change the sign on the number and flip the number/fraction to get the negative reciprocal.

Acceleration is negative when the object is moving in the opposite direction. on a graph the line would be in the negative quadrant.

The first stage in dividing by a negative mixed number would be to convert that number into a top-heavy or vulgar fraction. Once this has been done, you ignore the negative sign for the time being, and multiply the number by the denominator. After this, you divide by the numerator. Finally, you swap the sign of the number you started with. If you were dividing a negative number the answer is positive. If you were dividing a positive number the answer is negative.

This depends on what the graph represents. If it is a graph of velocity on the vertical and time on the horizontal, then if acceleration is at a constant rate, the graph will be a straight line with positive slope (pointing 'up'). If acceleration stops, then the graph will be a horizontal line (zero acceleration or deceleration). If it is deceleration (negative acceleration), then the graph will have negative slope (pointing down).

It would have a downhill slope from left to right
