Do you have paper and a utensil, maybe a calculator, a rock and a cavewall? Anything?

Actually, you are adding a positive number and a negative number together. The net result is, of course, a difference, not a sum.

If I were writing the question, I'd use the word "combine" instead of "add."

Ok...So the answer would be 2.49 am i correct or should i do it the other way around
anonymous
  • anonymous
What I think mathmale is trying to say is that you could switch this around to 6.17-3.62 and achieve the same answer. Do you want to try it this way?

I got 2.55 doing it that way
anonymous
  • anonymous
There you have it, good job! :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
well -2.55....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, but because you had switched the addition to subtraction, you would need to switch the negative to a positive, so 2.55 is correct.
