It would appear that someone down-voted your question:

Jeremy Good

I don't understand why would someone do that?

-Yogesh

Yogesh Patel

I can't speak for the community member who did this, but if it makes you feel better I just up-voted the question so now it shows 1 instead of -1

Jeremy Good

Hahahaha... You made me laugh... thanks

Jeremy Good

Wait, you mean -1 + 1 = 1?

Steve Rumsby

No

-1+1+1 = 1

That can of mathematical worms has been opened a few times already here in the CC, Q&A, or IdeaPlace --> don't remember exactly...

Jeremy Good

How did I miss that? I do like a good can of worms...

Jeremy Good

I am having a sense of deja vu over this one too. I'm trying to dig up the previous conversations and any resolutions...

Steve Rumsby

Yep, that's SCN math .

Jelena Perfiljeva

LOL - I considered pseudo @mentioning you in my last comment, but apparently you read my mind ;)

Jelena Perfiljeva

I remember that now. I think my brain must have blocked it out for fear of driving me (more) mad.

So to summarise:

• -1 + 1 = 1
• -1 +1 -1 = 0

Right? Thank goodness this is not a company that produces accounting software... :-)
