You can tell if an atom will form a positive or negative ion if the number of electrons (which have a negative charge) is greater then the number of protons (which have a positive charge), or visa versa. If there are more electrons, the atom will form a negative ion, but if the atom has more protons, the atom will form a positive ion.
the number that has the minus sign in front of it is negative and the normal number is positive example: negative: -9 positive: 9
If you are multiplying negative numbers, an odd number of factors will have a negative product. An even number of factors will have a positive product.
If the negative number is bigger then the answer will be negative If the bigger number is positive then the answer will be positive. All you do is subtract the two numbers and take the sign of the bigger number Ex (+2)+(-7)=(-5)
If the exponent is not negative, then a number written in scientific notation is greater than or equal to 1.
It describes the ion. If it is negative it is an anion.
A positive number will always be greater than a negative number. If two integers have the same sign, and this sign is negative, then the lower number in absolute value will be the highest. If two integers have positive signs, the larger number will be the highest. If one of the numbers is zero and the other number is negative, then zero will always be the higher number. If one of the numbers is zero, and the other number is positive, the positive number wil always be highest. And just a reminder, for any number n, the absolute value of n, often written |n| , we have |n|=n if n is greater than or equal to zero and |n|= negative n if n is less than zero. For example, |3|=3 |-3|= -(-3)=3
If the are always smiling then they are positive but if the are always perky then they are negative
1. a negative number has a minus(-) sign before the number. 2. A negative number is always below zero.
It is to yell what is in the outer shell and the positive and negative ions that form.
see the signs on the ends. "-" means negative and "+" means positive.
Large side is negative
