Arlene is showing her work in simplifying −7.9 + 8.2 − 3.4 + 2.1. Identify any errors in her work or in her reasoning. Write feedback to Arlene explaining the mistake she made and how to correct her work.

    Keep doing each step manually, and see where it slips up: −7.9+8.2−3.4+2.1=−1 −7.9+8.2+(−3.4)+2.1=−1 −7.9+(−3.4)+8.2+2.1=−1 (−7.9+(−3.4))+(8.2+2.1)=−1 −11.3+10.3=−1
