7-(-5)=12

An easy way to remember this:

When a bad thing ( a -) happens to a bad guy (a negative) we think that's good.

When a bad thing ( a -) happens to a good guy ( a positive) we think that's bad.

When a good thing (a +) happens to a bad guy ( a negative) we think that's bad.

When a good thing (a+) happens to a good guy ( a positive) we think that's good.

Hope this helped!
