# How do you simplify (-14)+(-10)?

Nov 17, 2016

Ignore the negative signs.

#### Explanation:

When both of the signs are negative, just treat them both like they're positive, and then tack on the negative sign once you get the final result. So...
$\left(- 14\right) + \left(- 10\right)$
$14 + 10$
$24$
$- 24$
And voila!
