Yes, a negative number subtracted from a positive number will always be positive. Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the opposite of the negative number. The opposite of a negative number is always positive. A positive number plus a positive number is always positive.

The sign of the answer will always be a positive number because subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive (

No. Adding two negative numbers will give a number which is more negative.

Adding a positive and negative number, the sum will always be negative. Example: 10+-20=-10 If you add two negatives, they cancel each other out making it positive.

A positive number. ALWAYS!!! 3 - (-5) = 3 + 5 = 8 Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding a positive number.

Yes, because subtrating a negative number is the same thing as adding a positive number.

A positive number times a positive number will always get you a positive number A negative number times a negative number will always get you a positive number (same signs will get you a positive number) but A positive number times a negative number will always get you a negative number or A negative number times a positive number will always get you a negative number (different signs will get you a negative number)

When it comes to numbers (this question was asked in the "Math and Arithmetic" category), adding a negative number to a positive number always equals a negative number.

A positive number multiplied by a negative number will always result in a negative number.

The answer is always positive. If the signs are the same (positive by positive, negative by negative), then the quotient is always positive. If the signs are different (positive by negative, negative by positive), then the quotient is always negative.

Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding the corresponding positive number:6 - (-3) = 6 + 3

It depends on the value of those numbers. ---------------------------- You always get a positive number. "Subtracting a negative number" is the same as "adding a positive number" because the two negatives "cancel." If I do something like 10 - (-12), this is the same as 10+12, or 22 (positive).

The square of a number is always two numbers multiplied together. A positive times a positive is always positive, and a negative times a negative is always positive.

When you multiply a positive number by a negative number you always get a negative number.

If you are adding a positive number, then this is the same as normal addition. For instance, 4 add positive 5 is 9. negative 1 add positive 8 is 7. If you are adding a negative number, then this is the same as subtracting that number. For instance 6 add negative 1 is 5. negative 7 add negative 2 is negative 9.

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

the answer could be negative or positive depending on whether the negative number you're adding is bigger than the positive number

The same as adding the corresponding positive number. For example, 4 - (-3) = 4 + 3 = 7. The result will always be positive.

It depends on what you are doing to the two identical numbers. If you are multiplying them, it becomes a negative. If you are dividing them, it becomes a negative. If you are adding them, it will always be zero (e.g., 2+ -2 = 0, etc.). There are two ways to subtract. If you are subtracting a positive from a negative, the number remains negative. If you are subtracting a negative from a positive, or a negative from a negative, the negative becomes a positive and you just add from there.

-10 x -5 = +50A negative times a negative will always equal a positive number.A negative times a positive will always equal a negative number.A positive times a positive will always equal a positive number.- x - = +- x + = -+ x + = +

A negative number minus a positive number will always be a negative number.

The result will always be negative. Positive X Positive = Positive Negative X Negative = Positive Positive X Negative = Negative
