y – (–19) = 25
i'm in sixth grade

• math -

y – (–19) = 25

y + 19 = 25

y = 25 - 19

y = 6

• math -

y – (–19) = 25
negative and negative is positive
y+19=25
now you want to get y all alone and anything flipped to the other side of the equals sign changes. so positive numbers turn negative as negative turn positive
y=25-19
y=6
