A positive and a negative give you a negative. Two negatives give you a positive. This is true for multiplication and division.

That would be false. When you subtract two positive numbers, you only go into negatives if the number you are subtracting is greater than the number it's being subtracted from. 3 - 2 = 1 2 - 3 = -1

That is false. A negative times a negative is always a positive. Since absolute numbers are always positive if you make it negative that is not correct.

there is always a positive and electron atoms in there

That's not necessarily true for addition and subtraction. It's only true for multiplicatioin and division. I look at it this way: "Negative" can mean 'down' or 'not', and 'not down' is the same as 'up'.

No. You have it backwards . . . . . the absolute value of a negative number is always a positive number.

I don't know about chromophores, but anions are always negative and cations are always positive. The way my teacher had us remember is that 'cat'ions are always 'paw'sative.

A negative is that which you make a positive image from by passing light through it. Usually this is done by passing light through it onto the medium which will become the positive (usually by way of chemical treatment). Daguerrotypes are an example of a negative made to look positive by way of passing light through the negative and back from a shiny (copper) surface behind it. Negatives are obviously not simply a color reversal thing, as black and white negatives do not represent the "opposite" or "reverse" of any color as the previous answer suggested.A positive is the final image as noted above. In addition to prints made from negatives, positives can be made of film, as in slides (aka transparencies). Again, a positive is not simply a true representation of actual color since a positive can also be made from black and white film.

im not sure what u mean but a ppositive relationship is when theyre are no negatives in a relationship like fighting alot or cheating or not being a true friend

The question neglects to specify the operation to be performed with the numbers.It does make a difference.If they are added, multiplied, or divided ... true.If they are subtracted ... possibly true in one direction, if the numbers are unequal; possibly false in the other, if the numbers are unequal and the result is negative.

No not always. There could be from negative charges to positive charges. !

Positives and negatives of conversation anywhere depend on who's conducting the conversation. This is also true in Antarctica.

It depends on the arithmetic operation you are performing:---------------------------------In AdditionNegatives and negatives have a negative sum. The only way to obtain a positive sum is to have a larger positive value than negative value.(-1) + (-2) = (-3)----------------------------In subtractionSubtracting a negative number is the same as adding its negative value (which is positive).(-1) - (-3) = (-1) + 3 = 2-------------------------------In MultiplicationThe 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 DivisionDividing 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.

when you are dividing 2 numbers with the same sign the answer is ALWAYS positive but when you are dividing 2 number with opposite signs the answer is ALWAYS negitive. the same is true with multiplication also

This statement is true because 1 is a factor of any 2 positive integers and so is always a common factor and since it is the smallest or lowest positive integer, it is always the lowest common factor.

there are always two sides of an opinion a bad and a good negative and a positive facts ae not always true.

The absolute value will always be positive because if you think about it, the absolute value.

your using the information you've found and looked up but it cannot always be true.

-it absorbs energy-it makes its surroundings colder-delta H is positive

Is false. If ' n ' is negative, then ' -n ' is positive.

The absolute value of any number is always positive. * * * * * The statement in the question is true; strictly speaking the answer is correct. The absolute value of 0 is 0, which is non-negative but is not positive. One exception is enough to falsify an "always".
