Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i just watched a (logic) lecture where the professor stressed that the difference was important, even thought he failed to explain what is was

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it can be true also, if the original is false hehe in logic, id like to think, negative as opposite direction, and minus is just a removal of some part, from the whole

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think ganesh is right, you can say theta squre root of a negative numbers is not defined, but you can't say that square root of minus number or minus of a numer is not defined, so you can't use negative and minus synonymously.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sry its that the instaed of theta in previous comment

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so a minus requires a reference point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@UnkleRhaukus yes obviously minus would require a refrence point as far as i know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and in the case that no reference pint has been specified , why can't we always assume it is zero?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can always assume that, but the only point i tried to make was that minus and negative can't be used interchangibly,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can't say they are the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is a single example where it matters ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1suppose b is positive, negative b means, b IS negative minus b means, b is positive, but we just removing the quantity b from ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from the original zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes from the original zero, its a must i guess when we talk negative numbers to take 0 as reference hmm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0minus is the actual operation of subtracting numbers. The negative sign indicates the integer. For example 5  (3). The  in the middle is the minus and the  in the bracket would be the negative. You could consider them as being the same honestly. If you look at 5  3, it could be rewritten as 5  (+3) and so on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1though, with reference to 5, the top quantity is less, its not a ve state. where as, the bottom quantity IS in ve state. coz its in opposite direction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well there is a grammatical difference atleast.. suppose you have 5 and 3 5 minus 3 makes sense,, but 5 negative 3 ? will that be right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0negative makes a number opposite of positive of positive and minus is the reason a question is subtraction
