Adding and subtracting positive and negative numb

Betty is in the process of opening her own business – a coffee shop in downtown Fargo, North Dakota. With the Grand Opening a month away, she runs the numbers involved in her upfront expenses: $5,400 for local advertising, $2,700 for the security deposit and first month’s rent, $390 for a business license, and $17,200 for a down payment on equipment and furniture. As an incentive to create new businesses in its downtown area, the city of Fargo will waive half of the cost of Betty’s business license.
How much money does Betty need to cover these upfront items?

Just add them together. Remember, though that the business license only costs $195.
