    previous answer is incorrect... well, he started off with 35.75 pounds and took away 15.4 AND took away 13.22 "take away" usually means subtract, right?

    let's try an easier example I have 10 apples, and I take away 5, then I take away 3 more, how many are left?

    good! you got that answer because 10-5-3 = 2, right? so, if I start off with 35.75 and take away 15.4 and then 13.22, how much do I have left?
