They started at the 34 yard line. They need to get to the 44 yard line for a first down. On the first play they lost 12 yards and on the 2nd play they lost 8 more yards. It is now 3rd down. Please help me. Thank ya

That would be 14. I figured it out.
12 + 8 = 20
34  20 = 14
44  14 = 30
So the answer would be 30.

You didn't post the whole question, which is why I posted only the obvious math process that was called for. Does the question ask for the yardline number where they ended up? Does it ask how many yards would they need to make on the 3rd down? Or what?

That was the whole question I was given. It asks how many yards they need to make on the 3rd down.
