What Does a positive minus a negative Equal?
Subtracting a negative from a positive is like adding the value of the negative number to the positive number. The two negative signs cancel like this:5 - (-3) = 5 + 3 =84 - (-1) = 4 + 1 = 5Generally, when you see two negative signs in a row, they cancel each other out to form a positive. Hope that helps!
if you subtract a negative, it cancels itself out making the answer a positive.
