It depends. (a) a positive minus a smaller positive is positive, (b) a positive minus a positive of the same size is zero, and (c) a positive minus a bigger positive is negative. For example, (a) 8 - 6 = 2 (b) 8 - 8 = 0 (c) 8 - 11 = -3

a negative minus a negative = a positive. the two negatives put together make a plus sign. example... 5-(-7) = 13

negative 45

13

It depends, if your adding -12 to 13 its like minusing 12 so its 1. but if its 11 + -12 its again like minusing 12 so its -1. :)

(+)13 does NOT equal (-13). However, their modulii (plural of modulus) are equal at '13' . It is written as as a value -13 < +13 However the modulii is written as |-13| = |+13| note the use of vertical lines, because the numerical value is the same.

-20 + 13 = -7

It depends. If the negative number is larger than the positive number, then it will be a negative. If the positive number is larger than the negative number, then it will be a positive. Example 1: -9 + 6 = -3 Example 2: 17 + (-13) = 6

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

The sum of a positive number and a negative number can be either negative or positive. 9 + -3 = 6 9 + -13 = -4

Well there are quite a few numbers that added together will equal negative 15: here are just a few examples: negative 1 plus negative 14 equals negative 15 (-1 + -14 = -15) negative 2 plus negative 13 equals negative 15 (-2 + -13 = -15) negative 3 plus negative 12 equals negative 15 (-3 + -12 = -15) negative 4 plus negative 11 equals negative 15 (-4 + -11 = -15) negative 5 plus negative 10 equals negative 15 (-5 + -10 = -15) negative 6 plus negative 9 equals negative 15 (-6 + -9 = -15) negative 7 plus negative 8 equals negative 15 (-7 + -8 = -15) negative 30 plus positive 15 equals negative 15 (-30 + 15 = -15) negative 29 plus positive 14 equals negative 15 (-29 + 14 = -15) negative 28 plus positive 13 equals negative 15 (-28 + 13 = -15) and on an on it goes.

Adding two negatives will make a larger negative sum. but adding a larger positive to a smaller negative will give a positive sum. -45 + 58 = 13

Seven minus -6 is 13.

One of them is equal to -27 and the other is equal to +13. They can be used together to produce other numbers, depending on what mathematical operation is used.

4m-17m+4 = 0 -13m = -4 Divide both sides by -13 remembering that a negative number divided into a negative number is equal to a positive number: m = 4/13

If you add a negative and a positive the answer (pos or neg) is that of the highest number. For example -13+ 3= -10 and -3 + 13 = 10. In this situation a negative (-) plus a positive (+) can be either negative or positive depending on which number is greater. Example: -10 + 5 = -5 because -10 is larger than 5 (even though that seems contradictory) Example: -5 + 10 = 5 because 10 is larger than -5.
