do you know the distance between -2.5 and 0?
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
yes

  • freckles
ok and what is it?
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
-2.5

and what is the distance between 0 and 1.5?
freckles
  • freckles
well distances are positive or zero
freckles
  • freckles
so I think you mean to say 2.5
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
yes they are
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
oh yes

the distance from -2.5 to 0 is 2.5 the distance from 0 to 1.5 is 1.5 the distance between -2.5 and 1.5 is the sum of the distances from -2.5 to 0 and 0 to 1.5

-4 or 4

I thought you were looking for distance what is the negative number there for?
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
to represent the A distance from the ship wreck

i wrote this as an answer

  • moazzam07
A = -2.5 B = 1.5 - 2.5 - 1.5 = - 4 This number is also known as the opposite (number), sign change, and negation. so by using addictive inverse i am basically changing the 1.5 into -1,5 so, - 1.5 + - 2.5 = - 4

am i wrong?

i think i am

anyways the distance from -2.5 to 0 can be found by doing 0-(-2.5) and the distance from 0 to 1.5 can be found by doing 1.5-0 and the distance from -2.5 to 1.5 can by found by adding those distances \[(1.5-0)+(0-(-2.5)) \\ (1.5)+(-(-2.5)) \\ 1.5-(-2.5)\] we have written the subtraction expression they seeked

we can write it to an equivalent addition expression by using the fact that -(-2.5)=+2.5 so 1.5-(-2.5)=1.5+2.5
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
ok
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
so 4 right?
freckles
  • freckles
yes -4 doesn't makes sense distance is only positive or zero
moazzam07
  • moazzam07
ok thanks
