Answer:There is a loss of 2 yards.

Step-by-step explanation:To find the overall gain or loss, we add or subtract there values.

Initially, we have 0 yards.Records 14, so 0 + 14 = 14, that is, for now a gain of 14

Then loses 7, so 14 – 7 = 7, for now a gain of 7.

Then, 7 – 9 = – 2, so in all, there is a loss of 2 yards.
