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?

Ok, great! And can you count how many numbers it takes to get from one point to the other?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
nope XD
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
jk
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
ha ha ha
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
10
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
sorry dont know how 2 count
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
It is 11 numbers from -11 to 0.
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Then 7 more to get to 7
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
What does that get us in total?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
18
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Good. So now, can you find the value of the options?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
c?
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Yep, that gets 18. :-) Are there any other options?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
b
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Hm, can you show me how you simplified b?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
well its does egsactly what we did
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
No, not quite. We simplify inside first. -11+7 is -4
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
oh
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
And the absolute value makes it positive, so 4
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Any other thoughts?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
no
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
What do you get for A when you simplify it?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
im not completely awake btw
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Ok, no worries :-)
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
18?
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
That's what I get. :-) What about D?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
again 18
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Hm, I don't see an absolute value around that one,
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
so I get -18 for D.
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
oh yea for got about the - part XD
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
No worries :-) So, what does that give us for the final answer?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
a&b
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
no wait a&c
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Right :-)
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
like i said not awak XD
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
