Yes, if you are adding two negative numbers then the answer will be a negative.

However, if you are multiplying or dividing two negative numbers then the answer will be a positive number.

They can be. It still depends on what the negative number is. -34 for example is still a whole number whilst -65.6 is not.


Yes, if you add negative numbers.


Negative numbers can be classified as either prime or composite because they still have their absolute value


It will still perform the calculation. The SUM function can deal with positive and negative numbers and it will deal with negative numbers correctly. So there will be no problems or errors if there are negative numbers amongst the numbers in the range of cells that it is calculating.


minus (negative) A negative number multiplied or divided by a negative is a positive. Then, multiplied or divided by another negative gives you a negative. A negative added to a negative is a negative. So adding a third negative is still a negative. Subtracting a - from a - is a -. So, subtracting a third - is still a -. No matter what operation you do, three negatives is a negative.


Any rational positive number is still rational when you make the same number negative.


It is 225.78: there are no negative numbers involved there. 200 + 20 + 5 + 0.7 + 0.08 All positive!


Natural numbers are a subset of whole numbers. All negative integers: -1, -2, -3, ... are whole numbers but they are not natural numbers. There is still some debate among mathematicians as to whether 0 is a natural number or not.Natural numbers are a subset of whole numbers.

Yes - negative integers are still whole numbers.


The correctness of either Prim's or Kruskal's algorithm, is not affected by negative edges in the graph. They both work fine with negative edges. The question boils down to "Does a Priority Queue of numbers work with negative numbers?" because of the fact that both Prim's and Kruskal's algorithm use a priority queue. Of course -- as negative numbers are simply numbers smaller than 0. The "<" sign will still work with negative numbers.


because when you go into negative (minus) numbers, you can still get even numbers, like -2, -4 and -6.


Yes. A fraction can be either positive or negative since it still equates to a numerical value and can exist as any combination of positive or negative numbers divided by either a positive or negative number.


because when you add numbers if you move them around then the quantaty of the numbers is still the same making it add up to the same number


when you add two positive integers the answer is always positive when you add two negative integers the answer is positive when you add one negative and on positive integer, the answer is negative subtracting two negative numbers gets a negative answer subtracting two positive numbers- the answer depends subtracting a negative and positive number- the answer depends, the positive number would have to be bigger than the negative to achieve a negative number, and if the positive number is less, than the answer is still negative


There is no such number. There are two possible interpretations of the question: the smallest number being the most negative or the one with the smallest absolute value. In the first case, negative numbers, like positive numbers go on forever. One less than the previous smallest will always be smaller. In the second case, numbers are infinitely dense. So for positive fractions, half of the previous smallest will be smaller still.


even though the HPT may have came out negative there is still a possibility of that still being the case. i would still go get checked out by a doctor


Yes. My Dad told me it is still negative.


It depends on what you do with the negative and positive. If you multiply or divide a positive number and a negative number, then the answer is negative. If you add or subtract a positive number and a negative number, the answer could be negative or positive depending on the numbers involved. If you put a negative sign in front of a positive number, the result is a negative number. If you put a positive sign in front of a negative number (like +(-7)), the result is still negative.



The negative root is not defined because if you multiply two negative numbers together, the product is still positive. 2*2 =4 (-2)*(-2) =4 So, there is no real answer to the square root of a negative number. In higher math however, the square root of negative one is actually defined as i. The set of i is a set of imaginary numbers, and they have some special properties.


It can. Negative 2 minus negative 1 = negative 1. However, it sometimes might be positive. Negative 5 minus negative 16 = positive 11. If you have two equal negative variables, such as -a - -a, you will get -2a. -2a may still be positive though, if a is a negative number. An example of having two unequal negative numbers is -a - -b, which is -a + b. That may be positive or negative depending on what a and b are equal to.


yes, they are being hunted because their numbers are still growing.


If you have not studied complex numbers, then the answer is as follows:The rules of multiplication for real numbers are thata positive times a positive is a positive, anda negative times a negative is a negative.[Also, 0 times 0 is 0].The upshot of all that is the square is never negative. And so, the answer is that there is no real number whose square is -62.If you have studied complex numbers then you should not be asking such basic questions! Still, the square roots of -62 are the complex pair ±7.874i where i is the imaginary square root of -1.


-- If the numerator and denominator of the fraction are both whole numbers,then the fraction is definitely a rational number.-- Even if they're not both whole numbers, it still canbe a rational number.-- Makes no difference whether the fraction is negative or positive, improper or proper.


The real number system was not invented: it evolved. People started off counting, using positive integers - the natural numbers. But they soon hit a problem when dealing with borrowing (or owing). So negative numbers were added, and the system became the set of integers. This was still not up to sharing evenly and so rational numbers [fractions] were added to the number system. But even that system was inadequate when it came to measuring the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle with sides of unit length. It was therefore necessary to add irrational numbers and we had the real number system. Some people believe that the ancient Indians knew about the existence of irrational numbers but this is not well documented. There is some evidence that the Greeks, in the 5th Century BCE, were aware of irrational numbers. Of course, the real number system is not good enough, as anyone who has come across the square root of a negative number will testify. So, the imaginary numbers were added to the system and so was born the Complex field.
