-12+6= -6

Rule: Positive + Positive = Positive 12+12=24 Positive - Positive = Positive or Negative 12-6=6 | 12-13=(-1) Positive + Negative = Greater numbers sign in the answer 14+(-18)=(-4) | 18+(-14)=4 Positive - Negative = Positive 8-(-8)=16 Negative + Negative = Negative -12+(-12)=(-24) Negative - Negative = Positive or Negative (-8)-(-9)=1 | (-8)-(-7)=(-1) by, Patrick Macarilay AKA, macason

Depends which has the larger absolute value: Eg: -6 - (-10) = -6 + 10 = 4, a positive answer -6 - (-4) = -6 + 4 = -2, a negative answer

A negative and a negative can yield a positive result in some cases.SubtractionSubtracting a negative number is the same as adding its negative value, which is positive. So if the subtracted number is larger in value, the answer will be positive.(-4) - (-3) = (-4) + 3 = (-1) * the subtracted number was not large enough(-4) - (-8) = (-4) + 8 = 4 *the subtracted number was large enough to yield a positiveMultiplication and DivisionWhenever a negative number and a negative number are multiplied or divided, the negative signs "cancel out" and the result is positive.(-2) x (-3) = 6(-6) / (-3) = 2A multiplication or division involving one negative and one positive will, however, have a negative result.

written as -6 - 2 answer: -8 Sir you are wrong. the answer is positive 12 A negative multiplied by a negative is a positive.

-12

-6 x 12 = -72

Pretend the negative number is positivedivide the positive number by a positive numbermake the result negative.For example, divide 12 by -6:Pretend -6 is 6divide 12 by 6 to get 2make the result negative to give -2Thus 12 ÷ -6 = -2

-18. Subtracting a positive number has the same effect as adding a negative.

6 + (-1) positive and negative will equal negative. so it's 6-1 that would equal 5. positive and positive= positive positive negative= negative negative negative = positive negative positive= negative

a negative timesa positive is negative a negative times a negative is positive -6 x - 2 = +12 -10 x -9 = + 90 12 + 90 = 102
