Regular Past simple forms ends in -ed in positive form.But many verbs have an irregular past form(sleep-slept,go-went)
Positive form * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Negative form
I/ you/ he/ she/ it/ we/ they started * * * I/ you/ he/she/it/we/ they didn't
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *start

we use Past simple to talk about a finished action or state in the past.It can be something that happened once or many times.We often say when it happened.
Examples:
He died in 1980.(once)
My mother always took me to school when i was young(many times)
I lived in a very small house those days.(state)
