multiply both sides by -1
The anser given is
Are these the same things if this were so then
-7+6 which it does not
Where am I going wrong
y in the both of the above scenario is the same if we keep x as a variable. 7-6 is not same as -7+6 since we know the exact value of each of the numbers.
The value of y in the above scenario depends on the value of x. If x is zero then y would be negative, if x >= 999900 then y is positive.
Hope I have not confused you further
