No.

Would you care to expound on that?

the difference, 50 cents

There you go. -2.25+1.75=-.5

I know that 0.5 is the correct answer but every time I work it out I get -1.5. I still don't get it.

Can you show me your working please?

but -2 +1 is -1

then why did u add the fives and... what did you do after that??

I subtracted the fives. 5-5=0

so what's a one doing over the 2 in the next column?

I borrowed 1 from the 2. That made the 2 above the 7 into a 12

I think the problem might be that you don't know how to subtract when you have to borrow.

What is 523-358?

When you subtract, you put the bigger number on top.

165

isn't the positive number the bigger one?

The number with the bigger absolute value. The number that is the bigger if you ignore the signs.

ohhh, didn't know that

Did you notice how I wrote the problem? That's the way you should write it.

okay, thanks a lot

thanks
