What do you think? If you are not sure, you can actually write out a number line mark -11 & 7 and count. But there is a mathematical definition, do you know what it is?
Can you draw the number line?
yea hold on
Ok, great! And can you count how many numbers it takes to get from one point to the other?
ha ha ha
sorry dont know how 2 count
It is 11 numbers from -11 to 0.
Then 7 more to get to 7
What does that get us in total?
Good. So now, can you find the value of the options?
Yep, that gets 18. :-) Are there any other options?
Hm, can you show me how you simplified b?
well its does egsactly what we did
No, not quite. We simplify inside first. -11+7 is -4
And the absolute value makes it positive, so 4
Any other thoughts?
What do you get for A when you simplify it?
im not completely awake btw
Ok, no worries :-)
That's what I get. :-) What about D?
Hm, I don't see an absolute value around that one,
so I get -18 for D.
oh yea for got about the - part XD
No worries :-) So, what does that give us for the final answer?
no wait a&c
like i said not awak XD
It's all good
