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

Minus a negative means you can plus a positive so therefore the answer would be positive 8.

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

when subtracting negative numbers its helpful to remember the following phrase: Keep, Change, Change this means that the sign of the first number stays the same but the other two change, applying it to your problem means that 3-(-8)=? keep, change, change 3+(+8)=? 3+8=11

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

The answer is 8. 5-(-3)(subtracting a negative is the same as 5+3(adding a positive).

Minus a negative means you can plus a positive so therefore the answer would be positive 8.

negative read this : "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)"

Not necessarily; it can be negative, zero, or positive. (-5) - (-3) = -5 + 3 = -2 (-5) - (-5) = -5 + 5 = 0 (-5) - (-8) = -5 + 8 = +3

A positive number. ALWAYS!!! 3 - (-5) = 3 + 5 = 8 Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding a positive number.

The answer is negative 7 stupid.
