When dealing with addition and subtraction regarding negative numbers, it is important to remember that negative numbers will act in the opposite way as a positive number.

For example, in this problem, 15 - (-22) , It may be easier to re-write it as this:

15 + 22

The negative sign of the 22 will be negated by the subtraction sign.

15 - (-22) = 37
