    First, you should define what forwards and backwards are - positive or negative. Let's make forwards positive and backwards negative. Then we'll call his new position "p":

    p (his current position) = 4 feet - 7.6 feet + 3.6 feet

    p = 7.6 feet - 7.6 feet

    p = 0 feet

    So, Jeremy ends up right back where he started.
