Negative Questions

How would I answer negative questions in the correct way?

For example: Are you not going with us?

No = Meaning I'm not going with them?
Yes= I am going with them?

Is this Correct?
P.S - Can you explain it all the way for me? I'm asking because many use yes for no and no for yes. By the way, thank you!^^
