On three consecutive passes, a football team gains 6 yards, loses 40 yards, and gains 31 yards. What number represents the total net yardage? I get -3, but that can't be right, can it?

You are correct.... 6 - 40 + 31 = -3 What it means is that you ended up three yards behind the original line of scrimmage... it would be 4th down and 13.

Well.. the answer is -3... it would be like starting on the half court line... if you walk 6 steps towards one basket and then walk backwards 40 steps and then forward 31 steps you would be 3 steps behind the half court line where you started. The where you started is the 0 on the number line so you would be at -3.
