### Do two plus signs make a minus?

In addition and subtraction, if the plus sign is larger than the
minus sign, then it's a plus. For example:
+10 minus -20 = -10
If the plus sign is smaller than the minus sign, the answer will
be a minus.
For example:
-10 minus + 20 = -10
In multiplication, if you have 2 plus signs, the answer will be
a plus sign. If you have 2 minus signs, the answer will be a plus
sign then, too. But if you have a plus and a minus sign, then the
answer will be a minus. For example:
+5 x + 2 = +10
-5 x - 2 = +10
-5 x +2 = -10

### Negative add to another negative is?

When you have a minus and a plus sign together, you simply
ignore the plus sign. For example -5 + -3 is the same as -5 - 3
which is -8.
If you have two minus signs together, you replace them with a
plus sign. For example -5 - -3 is the same as -5 + 3 which gives
-2.
