# Thread: Simple (and stupid) question

1. ## Simple (and stupid) question

Guys, just have a small question, might sound stupid but here it goes:

If I have 1 - |-3 -4| , my answer would be 1-7 right? Thats what I think but I am not sure. The -7 becomes positive because of the abs. value, but then becomes negative again because of the sign?

Any toughts? Thanks a lot and sorry for the stupid question, just wanted to make sure.

3. ## Re: Simple (and stupid) question
