Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can even apply it into a calculator w/o the signs… just make sure to keep the negative sign if the greater number is a negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Awesome! So 300  350 = ? I think you may have mixed up the numbers with multiplication because a negative times a negative = positive. So it equals to 650, which is A. I apologize for saying it was wrong.. that was my error.
