#### Answer

$193$

#### Work Step by Step

The given description, "the difference between $114$ and $-79$" translates to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 114-(-79) .\end{array} Since the expression $a-(-b)$ simplifies to $a+b,$ the expression above simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 114-(-79) \\\\= 114+79 \\\\= 193 .\end{array}
