To subtract a negative number is equivalent to adding a positive number. Two negatives multiplied make a positive.
When one number is subtracted from another number, the result is known as the difference.
It is called the difference.
False. Counterexample: -1 - (-2) = -1 + 2 = 1.
In the same way that you would answer a fraction subtract another fraction. The result could be either positive or negative, just as is the case with negative whole numbers.
i think you just add it and put the negative sign in front of it
When you subtract one number from another, the result is called the difference. What does your question mean? If by "when two whole numbers are subtracted" you mean that you subtract one whole number from the minuend, and then you subtract another whole number from the difference, then the answer you get is another difference. In effect, you have one minuend and two subtrahends.
The difference is then obtained
always a negative number. just think about going backwards on a number line.
minus, take away
The number you get when you subtract a number from another number.
The answer when subtracting one number from another is called a difference. When subtracting one fraction from another, it is still called a difference.
(-10) - (-5) = (-5) when subtracting a negative number from another negative number if the first number is larger that the second number then you just subtract the to numbers. don't worry about the signs just subtract the numbers when your done put the sign of the first number on again.
When you subtract it from a bigger exponent of another number by dividing two numbers with exponents.
If you subtract a negative number from another number, you always get a bigger number. That is because minus a minus is a plus So you could subtract any negative number from 10 and answer is bigger than 10.
