# When you add numbers that have different signs will you always get a negative number?

No. When you add a positive and negative number, the bigger one determines the sign of the result. For example, when you add -5 and 3, the result will be negative because the negative number is larger. When you add -4 and 6, the result will be positive because the positive number is larger.

3 negative numbers are three negative numbers. There are a lot of things you can do with them: -- You can add them up. Their sum is always a negative number. -- You can add two of them and subtract the third one from the sum. The result could be a positive number or it could be a negative number. It depends on the three negative numbers you started with. -- You can multiply them all together. The product is always a negative number. -- You can multiply all of their absolute values together. The product is always a positive number. -- You can multiply two of them, and divide the product by the third one. The result is always a negative number. -- You can multiply two of them, then raise the product to the power of the third one. The result is always a positive number. -- You can divide one of them by another one, then raise the quotient to the power of the third one. The result is always a positive number.
