Until this point, we have seen all integers as being positive and you could take away numbers, but zero was our ground floor. Now with will explore the concept of negative numbers that drop that ground floor. Negative values have a minus sign in front of them and indicate a value less than zero. There are a number of things we need to keep in mind in regard to operations with negative numbers. If you subtract a negative number, the two negatives can combine. When multiplying or dividing negative values, start by ignoring the negative and positive values. Figure those out at the end of the problem. When the two numbers are the same the result will be positive, if they are different the answer will be negative. Most signed numbers are negative numbers.
