It's a `difference`. In the sentence, which ever term is listed `second` is the one which is being subtracted. Example: the `difference` of `five` and `four times a number x` would be written as, `5` `-` `4x` Does that maybe help you figure it out? :o

x + x + x = 3x thus x + x + x -7 => 3x -7 so, it means, a number added 3 times, or 3 times that number whatever that amount is, then we subtract 7 from it
