@texaschic101 it's in the middle of -2 and -3 but it's a little closer to -3

do you see the number line? do you see that if you divide the one unit into 10 then each division has a value of 0.1

8. Tal_Tal

Sorry I meant it's closer to -2

9. Tal_Tal

That's what it looks like

10. triciaal

in my sketch I showed -2.5 5 markers less than -2 same as 5 markers more than -3

count how many markers you have and multiply by 0.1 subtract from the whole number

0.8?

15. triciaal

I have no idea because I don't see where R is?

16. triciaal

review my example for -2.5

17. Tal_Tal
