Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[70  13\] is the only correct subtraction expression, so you can eliminate C and D.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct, now since you want to find the "distance" between two numbers, you take the absolute value of their difference.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Jinni opened a bank account. She deposited $87.60 into her account every month for 10 months. She used $25.60 every month to pay for music classes. After 10 months, she used 1 over 4 of the total money left in her account to go to a summer camp for musicians. What is the total amount of money Jinni spent to go to the summer camp? A) $64.00 B)$88.00 C)$155.00 D) $620.00

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Jinni deposited money for 10 months. In total, she must have deposited \[10 \times $87.60\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so far its $876 right? @math1234

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0However, Jinni spends $25.60 each month. So her remaining balance after 10 months is \[10 \times ($87.60  $25.60) = 10 \times $62.00 = $620.00\]
