ALways negative.

The dividend (answer) will be negative.

a positive outcome, and a negative outcome

If "a" is multiplied or divided by a positive it will be negative.If "a" is added to a number less than 23 it will be negative.

Two negative numbers divided or multiplied together results in a positive outcome. For example: -8/-2 = 4 and -9*-3 = 27

The same as adding a positive one.

It equals a negative plus a positive. Unlike multiplication, subtraction and addition with negatives doesn't have a set negative or positive outcome.

Favourable result.

5+(-2)=34+(-5)=-1As you see, a positive plus a negative can be either a negative or a positive. In order to figure out, the sign with the larger absolute value will be the outcome. For example, the outcome of 9+(-1) will be a positive number because the absolute value of 9 is greater than of -1. The answer will be 8, a positive number.See the below link for information on absolute value!

No ,zero is not positive or negative so the outcome is the same as it was to begin with. In other words, you broke even.
