8 minus negative three or 8--3 equal positive 11. The double negative converts the minus sign into a plus sign and the negative into a positive.

It depends. (a) a positive minus a smaller positive is positive, (b) a positive minus a positive of the same size is zero, and (c) a positive minus a bigger positive is negative. For example, (a) 8 - 6 = 2 (b) 8 - 8 = 0 (c) 8 - 11 = -3

-8 - +3 = -11

When you multiply a negative number by a positive number then the product is always negative. When you multiply a positive number by a negative number then the product is always negative. ( - 2 ) ( + 3 ) = - 6 ( - 4 ) ( 1 ) = - 4 ( - 1 ) 2 = - 2 ( + 2 ) ( - 2 ) = - 4 ( 3 ) ( - 2 ) = - 6 4 ( - 2 ) = - 8

-3 - 8 is the same as -3 + -8 which is -11.

The answer is 8. 5-(-3)(subtracting a negative is the same as 5+3(adding a positive).

The result can be either positive or negative, depending on the sizes of those original two negative numbers. (-8) minus (-10) = positive 2 (-8) minus (-5) = negative 3

Minus a negative means you can plus a positive so therefore the answer would be positive 8.

When you have to subtract a negative number, the two negatives cancel each other out to create a positive. So really, your question is what is positive 8 plus positive 3.

Yes because when you subtract a negative, you're really just adding a positive. It really is 3+5=8, not 3-(-5)=8.

Not necessarily; it can be negative, zero, or positive. (-5) - (-3) = -5 + 3 = -2 (-5) - (-5) = -5 + 5 = 0 (-5) - (-8) = -5 + 8 = +3

it is -8 because you are putting a positive into a negative number

A positive number. ALWAYS!!! 3 - (-5) = 3 + 5 = 8 Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding a positive number.

The answer is negative 7 stupid.

Positive 8.... is that right?
