Maybe add menos in front of a number. -10 would be menos diez. I am not sure.

your answer is correct. - melipiru, ENE 12, 2010
Are you sure that is right? Wouldn't that mean to subtract 10? I heard somewhere that you can say "diez negativo", but I don't know if that is correct either. - Lemonade, ENE 15, 2010
