## What happens when you have 2 positives?

Multiplying and Dividing with Positive and Negative Numbers. When the signs of the two numbers are the same, the answer will be positive. When the signs of the two numbers are different, the answer will be negative.

**Do 2 positives make a positive?**

If two positive numbers are multiplied together or divided, the answer is positive. If two negative numbers are multiplied together or divided, the answer is positive. If a positive and a negative number are multiplied or divided, the answer is negative.

### Why do two positives make a positive?

Each number has an “additive inverse” associated to it (a sort of “opposite” number), which when added to the original number gives zero. The fact that the product of two negatives is a positive is therefore related to the fact that the inverse of the inverse of a positive number is that positive number back again.

**What is the rule for adding two positives?**

For two positive numbers, if the first number is larger than the second, then the result is another positive number. If you subtract a large positive number from a smaller positive number, you get a negative number.

## What does a positive and a positive equal?

Rule 1: A positive number times a positive number equals a positive number. This is the multiplication you have been doing all along, positive numbers times positive numbers equal positive numbers. 5 is a positive number, 3 is a positive number and multiplying equals a positive number: 15.

**Does a positive plus a positive equal a positive?**

):( Positive number plus a positive number, add the two numbers, and it equals a positive number.

### What is a positive times a positive?

Rule 1: A positive number times a positive number equals a positive number. This is the multiplication you have been doing all along, positive numbers times positive numbers equal positive numbers. For example, 5 x 3 = 15. 5 is a positive number, 3 is a positive number and multiplying equals a positive number: 15.

**Is mean always positive?**

Arithmetic mean is not always positive. Arithmetic mean can be negative and zero too.

## 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.

**What happens when you add positive and negative numbers?**

When you add a positive number, you move to the right on the number line. When you add a negative number, you move to the left on the number line. Example 3: Add 6+(−8) using a number line.

### What is positive or negative?

Positive numbers are defined as numbers greater than zero, or to the right of zero on the number line. Negative numbers, conversely, are the numbers less than zero and on the left side of the number line. Since the definitions are relative to zero, zero itself is neither positive nor negative.

**How many negatives and positives make a positive?**

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

## Can you do a positive and a negative at the same time?

By facing in the negative direction, and walking backwards ( two negatives ), you have achieved a positive result. Two negatives cancel each other out. You can see this in speech: “Just do it!” is a positive encouragement to do something. “Don’t do that!” is asking someone not to do something. It’s a negative.

**Can you multiply a positive number to a negative number?**

You cannot multiply a number by itself to get a negative number. 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.

### What is the probability that two positives make a negative?

Do two positives make a negative? – Answers what is the probability that a student attended the game, given that the student is from north beach round your answer to two decimal places? What is another way to describe the vector below “40 feet to the right”?
