    \[-9-(-10) = 19\] \[= -9 + 10\] \[= 1\]

    when the minuend is subtracting a larger number then what its value is then the answer has to be a positive number(at least in the case where the two numbers are negative). So the answer has to be positive.

    so we still have to subtract but we just have to see if it is a negative or not

    yes... subtracting a negative from a negative means you will add the second. number up but you are adding up to zero so if it is -3 minus -7 you have to count up like -3 1 -2 2 -1 3 0 4 1 5 2 6 3 7

    The numbers on the left is counting up to your answer. The numbers on the right is how many times you add.

    so 4 is that answer

    The answer is three because you have to count ZERO as a number when going from negative numbers to positive numbers

    so -3 - (-7) = 3

  20. BishopPatton
    • one year ago

    so count from -3 to +3 counting 0 as a number and you will find that you counted 7 numbers.

    because 10-2=8 but this is kinda backwards so you add instead 10 - (-2) = 12. So instead of a positive number making another positive go down. Anegative number trying to make a positive number actually makes it go up.
