When I wrote "two times", then I was using it for the complete operation. In other words, perform the operation of subtracting 2 from 23. Do this operation not once but two times.




That's how I got 19, tho. If you subtract 2 from 23 twice, after the first subtraction of 2 from 23, you get 21, then when you subtract 2 the second time (now 2 from that 21) you get 19.
