Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when adding/subtracting with signs....if the signs are the same, add them and use the same sign. If the signs are different, subtract them and use the sign of the bigger number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok...after subbing your problem becomes : 1.5  (7.7).....little different here...we have to distribute the negative through the parenthesis changing the problem to : 1.5 + 7.7.....so the signs are different. So you subtract (7.7  1.5) and use the sign of the bigger number.
