    Plot the numbers in a number line, find the number in the middle.

    To find the middle (average), add the numbers and divide by two:

    -14 + 8 = -6

    -6 / 2 = -3

    -3 + 12 = 9

    9 / 2 = 4.5

    Find the mean of the two  numbers.  Just because one is negative doesn't mean how to do it changes.

    Add the two numbers together and divide by 2:

    (-14 + 8) / 2

    -6 / 2

    -3

    Now you do the other one.
