I am confused about this one. It is about football.
"In a football game the ball was advanced 5 yards from the Juniors' 25-yard line towards the Seniors' goal, then 6 yards then 8 yards back, 13 yards forward, 5 yards back, and then 11 yards forward. What was the position of the ball after 3 plays? 4 plays? After 5? After 6?

What is a "play?"

Thank you for reading,
