Give an example of a real world situation that could be represented by the expression -1.4-2.3. Then simplify the expression and tell what the answer means in the context of the situation.
Maureen borrowed $1.40 from her dad. Then she realized she needed $2.30 more. She now is in debt 2.3 + 1.4 = $3.70.
- 1.4 + -2.3 = -3.7
