## Question:

Calculate the value of {eq}1 - (1.00625) - 60 {/eq}. Show your work in detail.

Addition is the mathematical term. There are 3 basic properties of addition

1) commutative property, a + b = b + a

2) Associative property , a + (b +c) = (a + b) + c

3) identity property, any number added to zero will give the same number

The value of the given equation is,

{eq}\begin{align*} 1 - \left( {1.00625} \right) - 60 &= 1 - 1.00625 - 60\\ &= - 0.00625 - 60\\ &= - 60.00625 \end{align*}{/eq}

Hence, the required value is -60.00625
