Match each statement with the correct term.
Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.
This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it reenforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. This law can be applied to subtraction by changing signs in such a way that all negative signs are treated as number signs rather than operational signs.That is  some of the addends can be negative numbers.
