Which of the following uses absolute value correctly to show the distance between −40 and 18?
1. |−40 − 18| = |−58| = −58 units
2.|−40 + 18| = |−22| = 22 units
3.|−40 − 18| = |−58| = 58 units
4.|−40 + 18| = |−22| = −22 units

I think it's the 3rd one . Cuz when u take it theoretically

58 is not in between 40 and18
This is how u do it . If u are asked to find the distance between X and Y . U will say it is x-y right? SO here its gonna be -40-18 = =58
I still don't get it
See if u are travelling from 18th pint to =40 th point okai. ? And imagine these are meter values !
So 18th to zero point u have gone 18 m right? and zero to 40th point u have gone another 40m so adding that it would be 58 since it is to the opposite direction it would be negative.
Absolute value is a number's distance from zero. All distances are positive.
absolute values are always gonna be positive, so the only one that theoretically makes sense would be the 3rd one.
