    Use absolute value to express the distance between −10 and 16 on the number line. |−10 − 16| = −6 |−10 − 16| = 6 |−10 − 16| = −26 |−10 − 16| = 26

    the requested distance, is given by the subsequent general formula: \[\Large \begin{gathered} d = \left| {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right| \hfill \\ {x_2} = - 10 \hfill \\ {x_1} = 16 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

    it is -26, now, by definition of absolute value, we have: \[\Large \left| { - 26} \right| = 26\]

    hint: distance is always a positive number
