Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4The absolute value of a number is just the number with no sign. If the number was positive or zero, the absolute value is just the number. If the number was negative, the absolute value is just the number without the negative sign, so it is a positive number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The lines represent the absolute value. So for instance, if you had thr number 5, the absolute value of 5 would be 5 since absolute values cannot be negative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Examples: 1 = 1 0 = 0 3 = 3 25 = 25 \(\sqrt 2 = \sqrt 2\) \(\sqrt 3  = \sqrt 3\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@mathstudent55 is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Do you understand the absolute value now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Good. Now look at choice A. 4 < 4 We are comparing 4 with 4 What is 4 equal to?

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Correct. That means the statement in A is really 4 < 4 Is 4 less than 4?

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Correct. That means statement A is false. We move on to B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Not so fast. What is 6 = ?

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4That means C really is: –6 = –6 6 = 6 Is 6 equal to 6?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Correct. By the process of elimination, the answer has to be D, but since we are not lazy, and we are here to learn, we will look at D.

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Correct. D is: –14 > 10 14 > 10 Is 14 greater than 10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Excellent. D is the correct answer since it is the only true statement among the choices.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which list of values is ordered from least to greatest? A. –5, 0, 3, ––4 B. –7, ––3, 0, –4 C. –6, –3, 1, 4 D. –12, ––5, 2, –8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Remember, the absolute value is only the number without a sign, so if the number is zero or positive, it's just the number. If the number is negative, just take out the negative sign and make it positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Take each choice and rewrite it by writing the correct absolute value. Here is A. A. –5, 0, 3, ––4 5, 0, 3, 4 5 = 5. You understand this, I'm sure. Do you understand why 4 is 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Exactly. See figure above.

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Since a negative number is less than a positive number, the 4 at the end cannot be in order from least to greatest, so A. is not the answer.

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4That means C is 6, 3, 1, 4 3 > 1, so it is not in order from least to greatest.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Right. They try to trick you and you need to outsmart them with your knowledge of math.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4D. –12, ––5, 2, –8 Here you can tell it's not it just by looking at 12 The first number is 12, so this is not possibly in order.
