to find the distance AD, we subtract
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
we subtract -4 from -1
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
-1 - -4 -1 + 4 3

SO WOULDNT IT BE -3?

distance is never negative

oh wait we add plus minus
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
even if we get -3, we will take its absolute value |-3| and always say that AD = +3

negative distance never exists in math
