Unformatted text preview: who couldnt like you?), decides to forgive $5000 of that debt. Hes removing it from your life. If someone subtracts debt that you owe, arent you richer for it? Its subtracting (removing) a negative (debt). This turns into a positive. This is how it works! Case II:4 7 = 11 (think of it as 4 +  7) 4 7 = 3 (think of it as 4 +  7)5 7 = 12 (think of it as 5 + 7) 5 7 = 2 (think of it as 5 +  7) Are you comfy with subtracting a negative being the same as a positive? Well, this time were going to go the opposite way. If youre ever confused because youre asked to subtract something heres a similar way to think of it: think of it as adding debt. If you add debt youre poorer, right? Your checking account has less money in it, right? Its the same basic principle. I hope this helps! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance....
