    What is your concern? The negative sign?

    It depends on the problem. I would say it's probably fine, as long as you understand what that number represents. You can't have a NEGATIVE amount of money. So it represents DEBT, or money owed. I'm confused, is -$19 your final answer? Or you were subtracting 19 from a different number. Like to show that you were taking 19 dollars away from a total.
