Subtract the numbers and take the absolute value. It does not matter which number you subtract from which. Both work.

No. Notice what is happening in B. The numbers are -5 and 3. In between the numbers in B., there is an addition sign. To find a distance, you SUBTRACT the numbers and take the absolute value, not ADD the numbers. It is not B.
