Let x = the first number (minuend)
     x - 11 = the other number (subtrahend)

Equation:
    (x) + (x - 11) = 3
    2x - 11 = 3
    2x = 3 + 11
    2x = 14
    2x/2 = 14/2
    x = 7

Substitute:
x = 7
x -11 ⇒  7 - 11 = -4

ANSWER:  The numbers are 7 and -4.

Check:  The sum of two numbers is 3
7 + (-4) = 3
7 - 4 = 3
3 = 3    (True)
