negative 15 plus positive three = negative twelve -15 + +3 = -12

First add all the negative numbers. It -4+-3+-8 is -15. Now 3+9=12So we need to as 12 to -15 which is the same as 12-15 or -3.When you add negative numbers you can just add them like positives then place the negative sign in front of you answer. Adding a positive and a negative is like subtracting the negative one from the positive one. That is what I did.

8+(-12)+(-3) simplifies to 8-12-3 which simplifies to 8-15 which simplifies to -7.

14/15 + 1/3 + 14/15 + 5/15 = 19/15 = 1 4/15 Negative divided by negative becomes positive. Common denominator is 15.

-3+-2=-5. In word form: negative three plus negative two equals negative five.
