    Let's take 7 , 12 as our first example. We're trying to find out the difference between the two...take 12 minus 7 and you get a difference of 5 between them. Now the first problem, 4, -17...put the larger one first and subtract the smaller one. 4 minus negative 17 is the same as 4 plus 17 which is 21. 23-8 is 15, of course. -1-14 is -15, but the difference between something can't be negative, so it's just 15. 18-(-3) = 18+3 = 21.
