Question 3 (e)
Fill in the blanks:
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
