With an example
True or false? A negative decimal number + positive number number will equal 0 because they will cancel each other out.
It depends. For example: -4 + 2 = -2 (So then the answer would be negative because the positive number was not high enough to get the negative number to 0.)
Or -4 + 7 = 3 (This answer would be positive since the positive number was enough to bring the negative number past 0.)
