Solution

## The above equation can be interpreted as follows: We need to subtract 15 from a number so that we get (-10). Now, if we consider the number line, we need to go 15 units to the left of a number to reach (-10). We can reach that number by going to the right of (-10) by 15 units on the number line. Hence, we get 5. 5– – 15 = –10
