Going to answer this although you alread know what it is.

r -(-19) = -77

so r+19 = -77

then subtract 19 from both sides

r+19-19 = -77 – 19

hence r= -96

when you subtract a negative number, it is just like adding, thus:

r-(-19) = -77

add -19 to both sides:

r = -77 + (-19) = -96

now, to check:

-96-(-19) =

-96 + 19 = -77
