# How do you simplify abs{+16} - abs{-60} - abs{-39} -abs {+26}?

See the entire simplification process below:

#### Explanation:

First, execute each of the absolute value functions:

$\left\mid 16 \right\mid - \left\mid - 60 \right\mid - \left\mid - 39 \right\mid - \left\mid + 26 \right\mid =$

$\left(16\right) - \left(60\right) - \left(39\right) - \left(26\right)$

Now, subtract the three terms on the right from $16$:

$16 - 125 = - 109$
