how do i do to get the answer for negative 12 + possitive 4+negative(8)
You want (12) + 4 + (8) This is the same as 12 + 4 8
If you add the first two number you get 12 + 4 = 8
Then add this to the last number to get 8 + 8 = 16
negative + positive = negative and negative + negative is negative so 12 + 4 + (8) = 16
