The sum will be negative also. (-3)+(-2)= m-5

The sum of the first ten positive integers, i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and 10, is 55. The sum of the first ten negative integers, i.e. -1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-7,-8,-9, and -10 is -55. The sum of the first ten positive integers plus the sum of the first ten negative integers is 0.

Factor 12 = 2x2x3 There's no combination for -12 as a product and -3 as a sum at the same time.

The sum is four.

Say you're adding -2+(-2). Adding negative two is equavilant to subtracting positive two. Both -2+(-2) would be -4. I hope that made sense.

yes the answer is always a positive

The sum of two negative integers is never positive.

no. eg. -2 + -9 =-11 <<this is negative if you were to multiply two negative integers, you would get a positive integer.

The sum of two negative integers is always negative due to the commutative and associatve property. In other words, summing or adding two negative numbers results in a larger scalar negative number. ex -1 + -1 = -2

The sum will be negative also. (-3)+(-2)= m-5

No. Never.

if the 2 signs are negative, than the sum is negative. if the 2 signs are positive, than the sum is positive.

-15 and 5

They are -15 and 5.

-2 and 5

18 and -2

No. Consider 0 and 1. Or negative numbers, whose sum produces a smaller number.
