    Answer:

    36

    Step-by-step explanation:

    According to the scenario, computation of the given data are as follows,

    Let the number be x, then

    First subtract 14 from number x, then

    x – 14

    Now multiply difference by -2, results -44

    (x – 14) × -2 = -44

    By solving equation,

    -2X + 28 = – 44

    – 2X = -44 – 28

    X = -72 ÷ -2

    x = 36

    So, Peter’s number is 36.
