If your are talking about integers, then negatives are numbers below zero also called minus. Example: -1 -2 -13 -45 and so on.

It's a negative plus a positive.

I'm pretty sure that -ve plus -ve equals another -ve. -ve plus +ve equals either one of the two, depending on which # is bigger. Same with +ve plus -ve. +ve plus +ve equals +v…e. I have done my research and I found out negative plus negative can be negative or positive depending on the bigger number. But, a lot of people make the mistake of subtracting even though the sign is a plus. Example: -7.29 + -3.8= -11.09 but if it was 7.29 + -3.8 the answer 11.09 would be positive because the bigger number is positive. (MORE)

Negative plus Negative would equal positive in Maths. like this: -7 + -8 = 1 Because you're adding a minus It Will Not Equal a Positive it will Equal a Negative. -7+-…8= -15. Because you are adding a negative to another negative. If the problem was -7+8= 1. Because you are taking seven out of that eight. If It were to be multiplication than a negative TIMES a negative would have been a positive(-8 x -7=56). And a negative TIMES a positive would be a negative (-8 x 7=-56). (MORE)

A negative + a negative + a negative equals a negative. Adding a negative number is equal to subtracting a positive number. For example: -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-2)-2-2 -2+(-2)+(-2)… = (-4)-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-6) (MORE)

It would depend on the magnitude of each number. Example: -5 - -3 = -2, but -4 - -7 = +3. See my discussion post for information about how to think about this.

It's either positive or negative depending on the number that is greater than the second number. Example subtract 10 from 20 the answer is 10. 20 as being the greater than 10.… Another example subtract 5 from -10 the answer is -15. -10 as being the greater than 5. Take note when subtracting positive and negative integers you change the sign of the subtrahend. (MORE)

The negative part in negative acceleration is indicating direction, as acceleration is a vector quantity. Speed however, is a scalar and has magnitude only and therefore canno…t be negative. An example could be -2.6ms -2 meaning that there is an acceleration of 2.6ms -2 but in the opposite direction to other vectors. (MORE)

Before I show you the general case, let us consider the simplest case. Lemma: -1 * -1 = 1 Proof: 0 = -1 * 0 because 0 times anything is zero 0 = -1*(1 + (-1)) because 1… and -1 are additive inverses 0 = -1 * 1 + (-1*-1) Distributive law of multiplication 0 = -1 + (-1 * -1) Because 1 is the identity of multiplication 1 = -1 * -1 Because 1 is the additive inverse of -1 QED This is a wonderful little proof because it only uses basic arithmetic which is easy to understand. Now let us consider the general case. Theorem: A negative number times a negative number is a positive number Proof: Let x and y be positive real numbers. Given: -x * -y = z We must show that z is a positive real number. -x * -y = z => (-1)*x * (-1)*y = z by definition of "-" => (-1)*(-1) * x * y = z by the commutative property of multiplication => 1 * x * y = z by the Lemma proved above => x * y = z Because 1 is the identity of multiplication. Because x and y are both positive real numbers, and the positive real numbers form a group under multiplication, we know that z must be a positive real number due to the closure property of groups.

yes * * * * * Wrong! The answer is that it depends! It depends on the relative magnitudes of the two numbers. If the magnitude of the first number is bigger, the answ…er is negative, If the magnitude of the two numbers is the same, the answer is zero, If the magnitude of the first number is smaller, the answer is positive.

It depends on the arithmetic operation you are performing: --------------------------------- In Addition Negatives and negatives have a negative sum. The only way to o…btain a positive sum is to have a larger positive value than negative value. (-1) + (-2) = (-3) ---------------------------- In subtraction Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding its negative value (which is positive). (-1) - (-3) = (-1) + 3 = 2 ------------------------------- In Multiplication The product of two negatives is a positive. The product of a negative and a positive is negative. (-1) x (-2) = 2 (-3) x (4) = (-12) ------------------------------ In Division Dividing a negative by a negative yields a positive number. Dividing a negative by a positive, or a positive by a negative, yields a negative number. (-4) / (-2) = 2 (-4) / 2 = (-2) 4 / (-2) = (-2) By re-multiplying from the results, you can see that this holds true. (MORE)

A negative plus a negative equals a negative because the operation you're doing is equivalent to subtraction. If you wrote down a sum "negative 3 plus negative 7" it would lo…ok like this: -3+-7 which is the same as -3-7 Whenever you add a negative number you are actually taking more away, and this is why a negative plus a negative equals a negative - You start with a negative number, and are taking even more away, so you will only ever end up with a negative number.

Remember i…f you are multiplying an odd number of negatives irrespective of the number of positives, it is always a negative. If you are multiplying an even number of negatives then the answer is a positive.
