Okay..could somebody tell me where I tripped up at? :oops:

The problem is :
-11-43+1-9+30=

I got:
54..

My work was:
-11+43+1-9+30
32+1-9+30
33-9
24+30=
54

It looks like you added 43 when you should have subtracted it in the first line of your work. I bet you can get this one right once you fix that little accident.

Much thanks,
