Biology - negative feedback

what does it mean for the separate mechanics for negative feedback and how does this lead to a greater degree of control?

Is this biology or maths?

literally states biology above and is in the correct thread - there's no point just providing help of where the thread should be moved to as it is in the correct thread there is just an additional thread too

It is a control in an input and output loop.

In hormones for instance, the negative feedback makes sure that the setpoint is equal to the actual value, so that the amount of release is decent. Without it, a too high or a lack of amount of hormones is released what has a bad impact on the functions of the organs and the metabolism. In that case two hormons control each other the input-output-loop in order to regulate the right value.
