Imagine you have a bank account, and you are tracking your balance. When you spend money or make withdrawals, the amount is subtracted from your account balance. In this context:

Positive Numbers: Represent deposits or money added to your account.

Negative Numbers: Represent withdrawals or money spent.

Example:

You start with a balance of $500 (positive).

You withdraw $100 from an ATM. The withdrawal is represented as -$100 (negative).

Your new balance is $400.

In this scenario, negative numbers indicate a decrease in the account balance due to a withdrawal. The use of negative numbers helps accurately reflect changes in Papa's Freezeria financial transactions and account balances.
