Do all things have electric charges?
Basically, all matter is made up of positive and negative electric charges. In many cases, the positive and negative charges cancel one another, so that the object appears to be neutral on a large scale, to the outside - or it may be closely enough balanced so as to appear to be neutral. In other cases, there may be a net positive or a net negative charge. Please note that there are indeed particles, such as the photon, the neutrino, and the (as-yet hypothetical) graviton, that have no electric charge.

Why do negative and negative become positive?
A negative and a negative can yield a positive result in some cases. Subtraction Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding its negative value, which is positive. So if the subtracted number is larger in value, the answer will be positive. (-4) - (-3) = (-4) + 3 = (-1) * the subtracted number was not large enough (-4) - (-8) = (-4) + 8 = 4 *the subtracted number was large enough to yield a positive Multiplication and Division Whenever a negative number and a negative number are multiplied or divided, the negative signs "cancel out" and the result is positive. (-2) x (-3) = 6 (-6) / (-3) = 2 A multiplication or division involving one negative and one positive will, however, have a negative result.

Properties of charges?
There are three different types of charges: positive, negative, and neutral. All three have their own specific properties having to do solely on atomic particles. In positive substances or ions, you will have a large number of protons which have a positive charge to outnumber the charge of the electrons which give off a negative charge, and lastly you have neutrons which don't really give a substance anything other than mass, to get a neutral charge the protons and neutrons must be in equal amounts to cancel out each others' charges.

Why is positive minus negative positive plus positive?
To subtract a negative number is the equivalent of adding a positive number. Subtracting is the opposite of adding. If adding a negative number is equivalent to subtraction, then subtracting a negative number must be equivalent to addition. A big positive number, such as, let us say, having a large bank account, is the opposite of having a large debt, which would be a negative amount of money. If you owe a thousand dollars, that means you have negative $1000. If you can subtract that debt by paying it off, then you have added $1000 to your net worth. so it makes perfect sense.

What are four different effects of feedback on the function of an amplifier?
1. Negative feedback can increase linearity at the expense of losing gain. 2. & 3. Positive feedback can result in large increases in gain until the increases becomes so large that oscillation occurs. 4. Positive or negative feedback at one frequency can result in enhanced or decreased response to that frequency.

Comes in two flavors positive and negative?
Electric charge can be positive or negative both on large scales and fundamentally (eg the protons in atomic nuclei have a charge of +1 and the electrons that orbit those nuclei have a charge of -1 [units are arbitrary, if you want derived SI then these charges are +- 1.6*10^-19 C]). You can also think of magnetic north and south poles as being 'positive' and 'negative' although this isn't strictly true. Mathematically of course there are positive and negative numbers where the number -x is defined by the fact that x+(-x)=0.
