-both negative~add,sum is negative{-3+-8=-11
-signs different~more(how much?)+or more-{3+-5=-2}

Subtraction: -add the opposite
{8- -4=8+ +4=12}

Multiplication
& Division: -if signs are the same.....answer is positive
{3x4=12} {-3x-4=12}
{12/3=4} {12/3=4}
-if signs are different.....answer is negative
{-3x4=-12} {+3x-4=-12}
{12/-3=-4} {-12/3=4}
