Adding a negative number to a negative number makes a larger negative. In order to solve this you add the numbers together as a positive then add a negative sign.

it negative eight just add normally and add negative

if they are both negative, add like they are positive numbers, but just add the negative sign.

You add as normal , pretend as if the signs weren't there,but the answer will be a negative!

The answer will also be negative.

None do.But the factors of negative 100 that add up to negative 15 are negative 20 and positive 5.

to answer a question with yes add a positive rejoinder to answer a question with no add a negative rejoinder....

If you are adding a positive number, then this is the same as normal addition. For instance, 4 add positive 5 is 9. negative 1 add positive 8 is 7. If you are adding a negative number, then this is the same as subtracting that number. For instance 6 add negative 1 is 5. negative 7 add negative 2 is negative 9.

you add and keep the same sign its simple ex. -4+-85=-89

-n+-n=-2n so -1+-1=-2. In simple terms a negative plus a negative eqauls a negative. You can just add the numbers as if they are positive and then add a negative sign to the answer.

If you subtract a negative from a positive, add both of their absolute values. If you subtract a positive from a negative, add both of their absolute values and multiply by negative one.

When you add a negative number, the one on the right side gets cancelled out. E.g. -3x + - 3x = -3x

No, you add the positive to the negative.

positive is to add and negative is to subtract in math

When you add two negative integers, the answer is still negative.

Add the second negative to the first negative, so -1 - -2 = 1

negative eight :) if you times 4x2 you get eight right? So if you add a negative to ONE number you add a negative to the answer. If you were to have both numbers as a negative, your answer would be postitive :) Hope I helped you :)

Please review your question, it is not possible to add a pair of numbers and get to different results.

You get more negative! eg -3 + (-6) = -9

First, add negative 5 and four. That answer is negative 1. Then add negative six, which is -7.

You can add negative 6267 to it.

If both numbers are positive, simply add them as you learned in 4th grade. If both numbers are negative,simply add them but add a minus to the answer. If one is positive and the other negative, ignoring the signs,subtract the smaller from the larger and add the sign of the larger to your answer.
