How do you simplify integers?

For my maths homework i need to answer questions such as; 6y - (-4y) I need to simplify this.

The answer is -2y.

All you need to remember is that a double negative makes a positive, so therefore -6 - -2 is actually -6 + 2 which is -4.

And that's all there is to it!
