Problem 2

Show that \((-2)+(-3)=-5\).

Expert verified

To show that \((-2) + (-3) = -5\), we first add the absolute values of the numbers, which are 2 and 3, resulting in 5. Since both original numbers are negative, we apply the negative sign back to the result, giving us -5. Thus, \((-2) + (-3) = -5\).
