No, it becomes a plus, since minus x minus = plus

X=27

x squared minus 12 x plus 36 = (x - 6)(x - 6)

By factoring I get x-3 divided by x+3

-22 - -22

x-8

x - 3

x - 5

The quotient of a positive integer by a negative is always negative. Say this to yourself a couple times: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

I honestly don't know :D but heres something to help you "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative ÷ negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative ÷ positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive ÷ positive = positive)"

No

In addition and subtraction, if the plus sign is larger than the minus sign, then it's a plus. For example: +10 minus -20 = -10 If the plus sign is smaller than the minus sign, the answer will be a minus. For example: -10 minus + 20 = -10 In multiplication, if you have 2 plus signs, the answer will be a plus sign. If you have 2 minus signs, the answer will be a plus sign then, too. But if you have a plus and a minus sign, then the answer will be a minus. For example: +5 x + 2 = +10 -5 x - 2 = +10 -5 x +2 = -10
