A negative or a positive! It depends on the question.EXAMPLES-7 + 3 = -4 ( a negative answer)-7 + 8 = 1 (a positive answer)IF you mean a negative times a positive, the answer is negative:-3 x 5 = -15

Either one. 5 + (-7) = -2 5 + (-2) = 3 You can even get zero: 5 + (-5) = 0

It is a plus positive, so -7 subtracting -2 is negative 5 - -5 when you are subtracting a negative, you just add the amount it is worth. So, -7-(-2)=-7 + 2= -5

-3 + -7 + 5 + -4 + -6 = -15

(-10) + (7) = -3

No a negative plus a negative is not a positive answer. example. -5+-2=-7 but if you are subtracting a negative number from a negative, then the second negative number would become a positive. example. -5 - -2= -5+2= =-3

Positive 4 -3 + 7= 4 Negative 3 plus positive 7 equals positive 4.

The answer will take on the sign of whichever numeral is greater, regardless of sign. 5 + -3 = 2 5 is greater than 3, the answer is positive. 5 + -7 = -2 7 is greater than 5, the answer is negative.

well it depends if the negative is bigger than the positive or viseversa. lets say you have -5+7 it would equal 2. if it was -7+5 it would equal -2. In short, a positive number plus a negative number is the same thing as a positive number minus another positive number. Example: 3 + (-2) = 1 3 - 2 = 1

Positive minus a negative = positive plus a positive two negatives make a positive 3- (-1) = 3 + 1 = 4 5- (-7) = 12

-7 + 15 - 8 = 0
