A negative minus a negative turns the latter into a plus positive,for example -6 minus -3 would be :-6 ++ 3 = -3A minus negative always turns into a plus positive...To get more Specific:Suppose x and y are two POSITIVE numbers so that -x and -y are negative. Then a negative minus a negative = (-x) - (-y) = -x +yIf x > y the answer is negativeIf x = y the answer is zeroIf x < y the answer is positive
a negative minus a negative = a positive. the two negatives put together make a plus sign. example... 5-(-7) = 13
take any negative number, and subtract a positive number..that is the same as adding a negative number and two negative numbers added together are a negative number.
negative 15 and positive 5
10 minus -2 is 12.
-2 minus 8 is -10.
2 minus -19 is 21.
Treat the "plus positive X" as "minus negative X". Example: Positive two plus positive two equals positive four. Positive two minus negative two equals positive four.
10--15 = 10+15 = 25 Two negative signs cancel out to be a positive therefore you add them together
You get a positive subtracted number. A negative minus a positive number will always give a negative answer. And the answer will be more negative than either of the two numbers.
