y – (–19) = 25
i'm in sixth grade

y – (–19) = 25
y + 19 = 25
y = 25  19
y = 6 
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=2519
y=6
thats your answer!
