4 + 11 = 15 yards gained

2 + 8 + 9 = 19 yards lost

15 - 19 = ?

and then like um my next question is maria had $123 she spent $35,loaned $20 to a friend and recieved her $90 paycheck how much does she have now? so you would do 123 -20=103

and then 103 - 20=83

and 83 + 90 =wich is 173 so that would be the answer right?
