  1. If you look at your calculator answer carefully it will show

    -26.7

    Think of it this way:

    Suppose you have $45.60 in your bank account and you write a cheque for $72.30.

    Assuming your bank allows you to overdraw, what will be your balance, (before they add a penalty fee for being overdrawn) ?
