It depends. (a) a positive minus a smaller positive is positive, (b) a positive minus a positive of the same size is zero, and (c) a positive minus a bigger positive is negative. For example, (a) 8 - 6 = 2 (b) 8 - 8 = 0 (c) 8 - 11 = -3

-12 minus -6 is -6

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

Minus a negative means you can plus a positive so therefore the answer would be positive 8.

positive 5 minus positive 11 = negative 6

A negative minus a negative turns the latter into a plus positive,for example -6 minus -3 would be :-6 ++ 3 = -3A minus negative always turns into a plus positive...To get more Specific:Suppose x and y are two POSITIVE numbers so that -x and -y are negative. Then a negative minus a negative = (-x) - (-y) = -x +yIf x > y the answer is negativeIf x = y the answer is zeroIf x < y the answer is positive

It is: 10--6 = 16 because --6 is +6

-6

You switch the numbers to 6 plus four, because it's the same thing. So, positive 6 minus negative 4 is 10.

3 minus -6 is 9.

6 - -12 = 18

(-8) x (-6) - (-12) = 60

Seven minus -6 is 13.

-6

-6

-6

-5 - 6 = -11

-9 - 6 = -15

(+2) - (-6) = +8

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

Goes towards positive.for instance, -7 minus -7 = 0or -10 minus -4 = -6OR -25 minus -30 = positive 5

-6

6 - (-32) = 6 + 32 = 38

It is: -3-(6) = -9
