    Try some examples.
    + 8 - (-8)

    Remember when you subtract, you add the opposite in algebra

    +8 + (+8) = 16

    + 10 - (-4) = "

    Look for a pattern.

    B always positive

    for example, this would be positive number - negative number = positive number + - - positive number = positive number

    3 (positive number ) - (-14) (negative number) = 3 --14 = 3+14 = 17. btw it cant be 0 because the first number is positive
