Subtract Integers 7 grade

I don't understand this problem because my teacher didn't explain it.


$\displaystyle 12-|8|$

Can someone explain?

|n| means absolute value of number n.
Example: |-5| = |5| = 5

Will someone please ban this clown? It is bad enough that he thinks this is google, but now he is giving students grotesquely incorrect answers.
