-8 - (-13) = - 8 + 13 = +5 ( minus a minus is a plus)

If the positive number is greater than the negative, it's a positive. Ex: 8 + (-3) = 5 If the negative is greater though, then the answer is a negative. Ex: 3 + (-5) = -2

3&5/8 +-5&1/4=-1&5/8

The result can be either positive or negative, depending on the sizes of those original two negative numbers. (-8) minus (-10) = positive 2 (-8) minus (-5) = negative 3

8 minus negative three or 8--3 equal positive 11. The double negative converts the minus sign into a plus sign and the negative into a positive.
