On three consecutive passes a football team gains 7 yards, loses 34 yards and gains 24 yards. What number represents the total net yardage?
For this would I just add 7+34+24 or is there a formula I should use?

the second pass resulted in a loss, so
7  34 +24 = ...
You have 3 gains

So is that what the net yardage would be gains?
