Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's call Jacksonville = J , Tampa = T and Miami = M So distance from J > T = 171 miles and distance from T>M = 206 miles now we have the following form: J > T = 171 miles T> M = 206 miles now let's subtract both equations: T> M = 206 miles  J >T = 171 miles ___________________________ (answer) J>M = 206  171 = 35 miles When you subtract both forms, the T(s) will cancel and become 0 , so you'll be left with JM , which is the distance from Jacksonville to Miami = 35 miles that's the smallest distance, which is the smallest range since we have subtracted, now to find the biggest distance add and you'll get 377 miles :) Did you understand it? ^_^ Answer = (A) :) Correct me if I'm wrong.
