Hayden had 212 gallons of water in his watering can. The seed packet said to use 14 of a gallon for peppers and 58 of a gallon for tomatoes. Hayden than used some of the water for lettuce. If Hayden had 34 gallons of water left over, about how much water did he use for lettuce?

$${\mathtt{212}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{14}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{58}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{34}} = {\mathtt{106}}$$

106 gallons.
