Negative margin-right

I am trying to understand how am I suppose to know that I need to use a negative margin-right to pull the second column back on the same line as the first column? I would never have known this on my own? I am not sure how negative margins work or is it obvious? If it were my own approach, I would have used a smaller width (like 45%) and used a margin value with the remaining space to separate the two columns.
