Adding a negative number is like subtracting that number. Subtracting a negative number is like adding it: \[ 5+-5 = 5-5 5-(-5) = 5+5 \]

\[ \begin{align*} 5+(-5) &= 5-5\\ 5-(-5) &= 5+5 \end{align*} \]

always add numbers... subtracting is just "adding a negative" 5-2 is the same as: 5 + (-2) = 3 Also, one point is this: If you have a problem like: 7-(-3); just take the 2 negatives and make a (+) out of them: 7 -(-3) = 7 -- 3 = 7+3 = 10 If that helps any

The sign in the parenthesis just symbolizes what kind of number we have whether it is positve or negative
