## What does positive and negative make?

When We Multiply:

Example | ||
---|---|---|

× | two positives make a positive: | 3 × 2 = 6 |

× | two negatives make a positive: | (−3) × (−2) = 6 |

× | a negative and a positive make a negative: | (−3) × 2 = −6 |

× | a positive and a negative make a negative: | 3 × (−2) = −6 |

## What is positive minus negative?

So, instead of subtracting a negative, you are adding a positive. This would read “negative two minus negative 4”. So we’re changing the two negative signs into a positive, so the equation now becomes -2 + 4. On the number line, it starts at -2.

## Where do we see negative numbers?

As you’ve seen negative numbers can be identified on the number line in a similar way to the temperatures on a thermometer. For example, the number line in Figure 4 shows the numbers –0.5, –1.8 and –2.4. These numbers are read as ‘minus zero point five’, ‘minus one point eight’ and ‘minus two point four’.

## What are some examples of negative numbers in real life?

Negative numbers are used in lots of different situations. You read about negative numbers in weather reports and on food packaging. The temperature -5°C is ‘negative five degrees’ and it means 5 degrees below zero. Read more about negative numbers on food packaging in the factsheet Storing frozen food.

## What is the largest negative number?

-1 is the largest negative number. As in real line,zero is non negative number. The right side from zero contains positive numbers that is from ‘+1′ and it’s in increasing form. Whereas the left side of zero contains negative numbers that is from ‘-1’ and it’s in decreasing form.

## What is the smallest negative number?

8. What is the smallest negative integer? Explain. There is no “smallest negative integer.” You can have an infinite number of negative numbers.

## What is the lowest negative number?

it has no end . as counting is endless therefore there is no smallest negative integer but the greatest negative integer is -1. We cannot find a smallest negative integer as well as greatest positive integer as there are infinitely many positive and negative integers.

## Is negative 2 less than negative 3?

Another important thing to know about negative numbers is that they get smaller the farther they get from 0. On this number line, the farther left a number is, the smaller it is. So 1 is smaller than 3. -2 is smaller than 1, and -7 is smaller than -2.

## Can you subtract two negative numbers?

Subtracting a number is the same as adding its opposite. So, subtracting a positive number is like adding a negative; you move to the left on the number line. Subtracting a negative number is like adding a positive; you move to the right on the number line.

## What are the rules of negative numbers?

To get a negative number, you need one negative and one positive number. The rule works the same way when you have more than two numbers to multiply or divide. An even number of negative numbers will give a positive answer. An odd number of negative numbers will give a negative answer.

## Can values be negative?

## Why negative and negative is positive?

Using the fact multiplication is commutative, a negative times a positive is also negative. Similarly, we can prove that a negative times a negative is a positive. Since we know that −ab is negative, and the sum of these two terms is 0, therefore (−a) × (−b) is positive.

## How do you do positive and negative signs?

The rule for multiplying and dividing is very similar to the rule for adding and subtracting.

- When the signs are different the answer is negative.
- When the signs are the same the answer is positive.

## What is the rule for adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers?

When adding positive numbers, count to the right. When subtracting positive numbers, count to the left. When subtracting negative numbers, count to the right.

## How do you use positive and negative numbers in your everyday life?

Altitude – above sea level is positive, below sea level is negative. Temperature – temperatures below zero are negative. Money (Loans) – savings are positive, loans are negative. Science – protons have a positive charge and electrons have a negative charge.

## What happens if you add a negative to a positive?

When you are adding a negative number to a positive number you are effectively subtracting the second number from the first. And then you add the negative number, which means you are moving to the left – in the negative direction. Basically you are subtracting the 2. The answer is 2.

## How do you subtract positive and negative integers?

To subtract integers, change the sign on the integer that is to be subtracted. If both signs are positive, the answer will be positive. If both signs are negative, the answer will be negative. If the signs are different subtract the smaller absolute value from the larger absolute value.
