One (negative) is preceded by a - sign and the other (positive) is not. Negative integers have values less than zero, whereas positive integers have values greater than zero. If a positive and negative integer are made up of the same digits and in the same order (e.g., 2 and -2, or 896 and -896), then when added together they will equal zero. If, however, one is subtracted from the other, then they will equal twice the number from which the other is subtracted.
