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
