    Default formula to find sum or 2 numbers that could be plus or minus

    I need to find the sum of 2 numbers and those numbers could either be plus or minus. How would a formula be written for that?

    Not sure if I'm asking the question well, so I'm after this:

    Example:
    A1 = .0695
    A2 = -.0010
    Answer = .0685

    A1= -.0695
    A2 = -.0010
    Answer = -.0750

    So, A1 and A2 can have a plus or minus in its column at any time.

    Thanks for any help with this!

    Regards,

    Paul

    Thanks for the reply and LOL!

    ...Right after I sent this question I realized I was over-thinking it! I mean, how about just add the numbers? Duh!

    I had just tried to figure out the signed difference between two numbers if either were plus or minus, which is an extra step...

    Anyway, thanks!
