Exact same if there was no negative sign, the number is the number.

the number that has the minus sign in front of it is negative and the normal number is positive example: negative: -9 positive: 9

It is negative, such as -2, which is negative two, or subtract, such as 7-4=3.

The way you add a negative number to a positive number is very simple to learn. First you need to check which number is bigger, the negative or the positive. Then you subtract the smaller number from the bigger number. Whichever number is bigger is the sign you keep. If the bigger number was positive your going to put a + in front of the answer. If its negative your going to put a minus sign in front .Here's an example: -5 + +9 = +4

It depends on what you do with the negative and positive. If you multiply or divide a positive number and a negative number, then the answer is negative. If you add or subtract a positive number and a negative number, the answer could be negative or positive depending on the numbers involved.

* If "a" is positive, "-a" is negative.* If "a" is negative, "-a" is positive. * If "a" is zero, "-a" is zero. If you want to force a negative number, you can write -|a|, i.e., the negative of the absolute value.

Sign

It always is a negative number. The result will be the sum of the two digits with a minus sign in front of it, eg, (-4) - (+7) = -4 - 7 = -11.
