    Well, I mean, without anything else, that's just a list of numbers.

    I really don't understand the question either. It literally just looks like a list of numbers. Is there any words along with the problem, any context?

    No, just the numbers. Maybe the answer is 36.

    Notice the notation there.\[\Large \begin{array}{l} \left| { - 8} \right| = 8\\ - \left| 8 \right| = - 8 \end{array}\]

    It's probably best to post these as new questions. But... \[\Large \begin{array}{l} - 10 + ( - 9) - ( - 20)\\ = - 10 - 9 + 20\\ = - 19 + 20\\ = 1 \end{array}\]
