Positive And Negative Number

Number system provides various types of number Patterns to solve the various
types of problems. From those number patterns we are going to discuss about the
positive and negative Numbers. In the general aspect both can be considered as
Integer numbers of mathematics.

Positive numbers are those numbers which have the value greater than 0 and
negative numbers are those numbers which have the value less than 0. In the
positive numbers we generally consider the values like .001, 1, 1.1, and 400 and
so on. In the same sense we consider the values like – 1, - 2, - .002, - 15 and so
on.

At the positive side of number system we know that greater value number has the
higher grading in comparison to other number values. In the case of negative
numbers, the number which has the higher value has the lower grading.

It means that – 2 has the highest value in comparison to – 4. If we have a
collection of several numbers, which contains the Combination of negative and

positive numbers, then we have to remember that in ascending order we first
place the negative values and after that positive values because positive numbers
are greater than the negative numbers.

The arithmetic operations negative and positive numbers can easily be performed.

Let us see the examples of performing the operations on positive and negative
numbers:

Example: Add the numbers 5.6 and – 2.3.

Solution: In the above example, there are numbers; one is positive and another is
negative, then solution will be

               =>         5.6 + (- 2.3)

In the above example, addition of (+) and (-) symbol will generate the result (+) as
the symbol of the larger number is (+).

               =>        5.6 – 2.3

               =>         3.3

Divide the rational numbers 12 / 5 to 18 / 5?

To divide two Rational Numbers is not a difficult task. When we divide two rational
numbers, first we need to find out the reciprocal of the second number and then
the division would be the multiplication of the first number and that reciprocal
number.

Here the rational numbers are 12 / 5 and 18 / 5. The reciprocal of 18 / 5 is 5 / 18.
So the division of these rational numbers is

(12 / 5) / (18/5) = (12 / 5) * (5 / 18),

(12 / 5) / (18/5) = (12 * 5) / (5 * 18),

(12 / 5) / (18/5) = 2 / 3
