Look at the following numbers: −2, −1, 0, 2 Which pair of numbers has a sum of 0? −1, 2 −2, 0 −2, 2 −1, 0

Which of the following describes a situation in which the total distance a soccer player travels is zero meters from his starting point? The player runs 9 meters forward, and then runs 0 meters in the opposite direction. The player runs 5 meters forward, and then runs 6 meters in the opposite direction. The player runs 10 meters forward, and then runs 10 meters in the opposite direction. The player runs 6 meters forward, and then runs 5 meters in the opposite direction.

@Vocaloid

5. Vocaloid

well, look at each of your answer choices... −1, 2 −2, 0 −2, 2 −1, 0 which answer choice adds up to 0?

6. anonymous

i already got that one. its c

7. Vocaloid

great

8. anonymous

and the other one?

9. Vocaloid

well, any thoughts?

10. Vocaloid

in order to get back where he started, he has to run the same distance in both directions

11. anonymous

c?

12. Vocaloid

yup

13. anonymous

@Vocaloid

14. Vocaloid

hint: -10 - (-8) = -10 + 8 means we go 10 to the left, then 8 to the right

15. anonymous

um, i land on 6

16. anonymous

but theres no option for that answer.. @Vocaloid

17. Vocaloid

try again... -10 + 8 = ?

18. anonymous

-2

19. Vocaloid

20. anonymous

b?

21. anonymous

@Vocaloid

22. Vocaloid

yes

23. anonymous

24. Michele_Laino

2+(-7), means that I have to shift to right by 2 units, then I have to go to left by 7 units

25. anonymous

so A?

26. Michele_Laino

so we have to move of 7 units from 2, to left

27. Michele_Laino

yes! correct!

28. anonymous

29. Michele_Laino

6+(-7) means 6 units from origin to right and 7 units from the point x=6 to left

30. anonymous

so A?

31. Michele_Laino

no, since in A both displacements are to right

32. anonymous

oh sorry i meant b

33. Michele_Laino

correct!

34. anonymous

Which of the following uses absolute value correctly to show the distance between −30 and 16? |−30 − 16| = |−46| = −46 units |−30 − 16| = |−46| = 46 units |−30 + 16| = |−14| = 14 units |−30 + 16| = |−14| = −14 units

35. Michele_Laino

what is -30-16=...?

36. anonymous

-46

37. Michele_Laino

ok! now, please neglect the minus sign, what do you get?

38. anonymous

so it would be b because the value is always positive

39. Michele_Laino

yes!

)Sandra is showing her work in simplifying (3.3 − 4.2) − 2.8 + 5.7. Identify any error in her work or reasoning. Step 1: (3.3 − 4.2) − 2.8 + 5.7 Step 2: 3.3 + (− 4.2 − 2.8) + 5.7 (distributive property) Step 3: 3.3 − 7 + 5.7 Step 4: 3.3 + 5.7 − 7 (commutative property) Step 5: 9 − 7 = 2 She wrote commutative instead of associative in Step 4. She wrote distributive instead of associative in Step 2. She wrote commutative instead of distributive in Step 4. She wrote distributive instead of commutative in Step 2.

41. Michele_Laino

at the step #2 the applied property is not the distributive property

42. anonymous

is it b?

43. Michele_Laino

yes! we have applied the associative property

44. anonymous

What is the sign of the product (−5)(−2)(−7)(−6)? Positive, because the products (−5)(−2) and (−7)(−6) are negative and the product of two negative numbers is positive Positive, because the products (−5)(−2) and (−7)(−6) are positive and the product of two positive numbers is positive Negative, because the products (−5)(−2) and (−7)(−6) are negative and the product of two negative numbers is negative Negative, because the products (−5)(−2) and (−7)(−6) are positive and the product of two positive numbers is negative

45. Michele_Laino

by the way, why you posted in history section?

46. anonymous

oh i dont know sorry , ill change that after.. lol

47. Michele_Laino

lol :)

48. Michele_Laino

we have the subsequent rule: $\Large \left( - \right) \cdot \left( - \right) = +$

49. Michele_Laino

so we have: $\Large \left\{ {\left( - \right) \cdot \left( - \right)} \right\} \cdot \left\{ {\left( - \right) \cdot \left( - \right)} \right\} = + \cdot + = +$

50. anonymous

b?

51. Michele_Laino

correct!

52. anonymous

53. Michele_Laino

we can write this: $\Large \left( {\frac{{ - 1}}{2}} \right) \cdot \left( {\frac{{ - 1}}{2}} \right) = \left( { - \frac{1}{2}} \right) \cdot \left( { - \frac{1}{2}} \right) = ...?$ also use the previous rule: $\Large \left( - \right) \cdot \left( - \right) = +$

54. anonymous

c?

55. Michele_Laino

yes!

56. anonymous

57. Michele_Laino

we can write this: $\Large \begin{gathered} - 5\frac{1}{4} = - \left( {5 + \frac{1}{4}} \right) = - \frac{{20 + 1}}{4} = ...? \hfill \\ \hfill \\ - 7\frac{1}{2} = - \left( {7 + \frac{1}{2}} \right) = - \frac{{14 + 1}}{2} = ...? \hfill \\ \end{gathered}$ please complete

58. anonymous

so i do this : 21/4 * 15/2

59. Michele_Laino

no, the single results are correct, nevertheless we have to do this: $\Large - 5\frac{1}{4} - \left\{ { - 7\frac{1}{2}} \right\} = - \frac{{21}}{4} + \frac{{15}}{2} = \frac{{ - 21 + \left( {2 \cdot 15} \right)}}{4} = ...?$

60. Michele_Laino

$\large - 5\frac{1}{4} - \left\{ { - 7\frac{1}{2}} \right\} = - \frac{{21}}{4} + \frac{{15}}{2} = \frac{{ - 21 + \left( {2 \cdot 15} \right)}}{4} = ...?$

61. anonymous

i got 9/4

62. Michele_Laino

now, please complete this computation: $\Large 2\frac{1}{4} = 2 + \frac{1}{4} = \frac{{\left( {2 \cdot 4} \right) + 1}}{4} = ...?$

63. anonymous

i got 9/4

64. Michele_Laino

then what is the right option?

65. anonymous

A?

66. Michele_Laino

correct!

67. anonymous

is 2 and 1/4 positive or negative?

68. anonymous
