# How do you solve y+(-10)=6?

Jul 14, 2018

$y = 16$

#### Explanation:

$y + \left(- 10\right) = 6$

Adding a negative number is the same thing without the positive sign. Therefore, the equation becomes:
$y - 10 = 6$

Now add $\textcolor{b l u e}{10}$ to both sides:
$y - 10 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 10} = 6 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 10}$

Therefore,
$y = 16$

Hope this helps!
