    Believe it or not, I got 12 too!! That was a little tricky. You must have the problem carefully to get the right answer. That is the key to most word problems. Read.. carefully and slowly.

    Janet: 73
    Linda: 73 + 28 = 101
    Alan: 101 + 17 = 118
    Sam: 118 - 33 = 85

    Yes, 12 is right.
