Positive 3 plus negative 5 minus negative 2 minus positive 4 is equal to -4.

It could equal both a negagtive number or a positive number. To get a definite positive or negative you times or divide. Well in addition and subtraction negative plus a negative equals a bigger negative. Kinda like -4+-4 =-8, but in multiplication and division 2 negatives equal a positive. -2 times-2 =positive 4.

A Negative plus a positive = a negative because negative and a positive cannot work together Negative + Negative= Positive Positive + Positive = Positive when your dealing with numbers such as : -2 + 2 would equal a negative 4 -2 +-2 would equal a positive 4

When you multiply a negative number by a positive number then the product is always negative. When you multiply a positive number by a negative number then the product is always negative. ( - 2 ) ( + 3 ) = - 6 ( - 4 ) ( 1 ) = - 4 ( - 1 ) 2 = - 2 ( + 2 ) ( - 2 ) = - 4 ( 3 ) ( - 2 ) = - 6 4 ( - 2 ) = - 8

Negative one, since +2+(-3)

some times 3+(-2) = 1 but 2+(-3) = -1

Negative. Adding a negative is the same as subtracting a positive. -2 + -3= -2 - 3= -5, not 1

A negative + a negative + a negative equals a negative. Adding a negative number is equal to subtracting a positive number. For example: -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-2)-2-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-4)-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-6)

It can be positive, negative, or zero, depending what numbers you add. for example, -5 + 3=-2 but -3 +5=+2

-6 + +8 = +2

negative -1/2+-1/2 = -1

If the positive number is greater than the negative, it's a positive. Ex: 8 + (-3) = 5 If the negative is greater though, then the answer is a negative. Ex: 3 + (-5) = -2

a positive plus a negative is a positive example 9-(-2) you would change the double negative to a positive hope this helped :)

well it depends if the negative is bigger than the positive or viseversa. lets say you have -5+7 it would equal 2. if it was -7+5 it would equal -2. In short, a positive number plus a negative number is the same thing as a positive number minus another positive number. Example: 3 + (-2) = 1 3 - 2 = 1

Uh, your question doesn't really make any sense.... A negative plus a positive can equal...a negative or a positive. Here is an example: -9 + 5 = -4 or -5 + 7 = 2 So they can be both.

A negative times a negative is always positive. To see why this is, see the link below.

Negatives and Positives Positive + Positive = Positive Negative + Negative = Positive Negative + Positive = Negative Positive + Negative = Negative

Negative plus a negative is a negative. Ex. -1+-1=-2 Negative times a negative is a positive. -2*-2=4 But a negative [minus] plus a positive [plus] can be minus, zero or plus: For example, -3 + 2 = -1 -3 + 3 = 0 -3 + 4 = +1

It depends on the magnitude of the negative and positive values. Equal magnitudes equal zero. -2 + 2 = 0 Larger negative number than positive number equals a negative number. -3 + 2 = -1 Smaller negative number than positive number equals a positive number. -2 + 3 = 1

if a positive number minus a negative number, the minus turns to a plus sign. so its positive Ex. 2- -4= 2+4=6

It depends. It could equal either a negative number or a positive number, depending whether the negative number or the positive number is larger in absolute value. For example, -5 + 3 = -2, but -5 + 12 = +7.

36 plus 40 plus negative 2 is equal to 74.

negative one
