Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This seems like basic math using negative integers. If Lucy's account had $164, and then the next day she only had $17, did she add or subtract money from her account?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well if we think about it, which amount is more? 164 or 17? Remember these are negative numbers so the closest number to 0 would be more
