Negative plus negative is negative. Positive plus negative is positive if the absolute value of the positive number is greater than the absolute value of the negative one. Positive plus negative is negative if the absolute value of the negative number is greater than the absolute value of the positive one. following multiplication integer rules and division rules, you should get: "MULTIPLICATION: minus times minus is plus (negative x negative = positive).....minus times plus is minus (negative x positive = negative).....plus times plus is plus (positive x positive = positive) DIVISION: minus divi minus is plus (negative &divide; negative = positive)......minus divi plus is minus (negative &divide; positive = negative).....plus divi plus is plus (positive &divide; positive = positive)" a division problem is a multiplication problem in disguise Because "minus a negative" is tha same as "plus a positive". So, a positive minus a negative is a positive plus a positive which is a positive. a positive plus a negative is a positive example 9-(-2) you would change the double negative to a positive hope this helped :) They are always negative due to a negative plus a negative equaling a negative. It's similar to a positive plus a positive equaling a positive. nope negative plus negative equals a negative -2+(-4)=-6 but negative times negative equals a positive    Positive plus positive equals positive. Negative plus negative equals negative. Positive greater than negative equals positive. Negative greater than positive equals negative. If, and only if the positive value is &gt; the negative value. -12/3 = -4Negative / positive or positive/negative = negativePositive/positive or negative/negative = positive Positive minus a negative = positive plus a positive two negatives make a positive 3- (-1) = 3 + 1 = 4 5- (-7) = 12 Negative answer if the negative number is bigger. Positive answer if the positive number is bigger. Uh, your question doesn't really make any sense.... A negative plus a positive can equal...a negative or a positive. Here is an example: -9 + 5 = -4 or -5 + 7 = 2 So they can be both.   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
