  3. Your question said so

    original amount = 1018
    He spent 84 on desk
    amount left = 1018-84 = 934
    He spent 372 on computer
    amount left = 934 - 372 = 562
    He put 44 back in the account
    amount after that = 562+44 = 606

    but he needs 1018 again
    amount needed = 1018-606 = 412
