Now, A – B = – 5 – (-11) which is the same as – 5 + 11. Now, -5 + 11 is the same as 11 – 5 = 6.

Question 10 of 10

10. Question

What is 5 – 8 – (-3)?

Correct

Incorrect

When you perform operations such as consecutive subtraction, you should do the operation from left to right. This means, you do 5 – 8 first and subtract -3 from the result. Now, 5 – 8 = 5 + (-8) = -3. Now, -3 – (-3) = 0.
5 – 8 – (-3)
