- anonymous

well i just watched a (logic) lecture where the professor stressed that the difference was important, even thought he failed to explain what is was

negative is a state, minus is a operator

- anonymous

they are basically the same though

- anonymous

Negative means false

- ganeshie8

it 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

- anonymous

i 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.

- anonymous

sry its that the instaed of theta in previous comment

- UnkleRhaukus

so a minus requires a reference point?

- anonymous

@UnkleRhaukus yes obviously minus would require a refrence point as far as i know.

- UnkleRhaukus

and in the case that no reference pint has been specified , why can't we always assume it is zero?

- anonymous

you can always assume that, but the only point i tried to make was that minus and negative can't be used interchangibly,

- anonymous

so you can't say they are the same

- UnkleRhaukus

what is a single example where it matters ?

- UnkleRhaukus

i want an example

- ganeshie8

suppose b is positive,
negative b means, b IS negative
minus b means, b is positive, but we just removing the quantity b from ?

- UnkleRhaukus

from the origin-al zero

- ganeshie8

yes from the original zero, its a must i guess when we talk negative numbers to take 0 as reference hmm

- anonymous

minus 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 re-written as 5 - (+3) and so on.

though, 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.

- shubhamsrg

well 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 ?

- anonymous

negative makes a number opposite of positive of positive and minus is the reason a question is subtraction

- anonymous

i think minus is a algorithms ,and negative is a description of the results of this algorithms
