What is 15 + -10 equal to?

**15 + - 10 = 5 Answer.**

If you're confused because of the signs then all you have to do is keep these pointers in mind:

Addition / Subtraction:

- 2 same signs result in addition i.e. - - = + , + + = + .
- 2 different signs result in subtraction i.e. - + = -, + - = - , sign of the bigger number is taken.

Division / Multiplication:

- When signs are different the minus sign is taken i.e. -*+ = -, -*+=-.
- When signs are same the plus sign is taken i.e. +*+=+, -*-=+.

to tihink of it simply, lets say you have 15 dollars, but you owe your friend 10 dollars, how much would you have left?

5! this is the same thing 15-10= 5

15 + -10 switch the + to a - because of the negative

15-10

5 is your answer
