Help Anyone Please? :(
Absolute Value, huh?
subtract -15 from -12 and take the absolute value of the result
the absolute value is always positive eg |-5| = 5
Remember that subtracting negative numbers from negative numbers would actually have an inverse effect and bring the number closer to zero rather than away from it.
can you calculate -12 - (-15)?
Actually, you are off by about 6. :/
-12 - (-15) = -12 + 15
recall - * - = +
-12 - (-15) is a double negative. Imagine taking the two negative signs, making one vertical and have one on top the other. It's actually -12 +15 now
it's just 12+15 bc the absolute value of a number switches, it's sign. as in if it is positive it will become negative, and the other way around.
oh my gosh it is not hard what is 15 - 12
so its c
it agrivates me when people try to over explain things
i know i was soooooo Lost i understood it and then i lost it and then i got it again and then i was totally off
Sorry, but it goes against the code of conduct to just give the answer out. Plus I'm used to mental math so I'm not very good at explaining my solution.
their trying to explain how everything works when in realityall you have to do is count and I did not give the aNSWER i JUST REWROTE THE PROBLEM
sorry stupic caps lock
@kayleeMullins - are you happy with working out problems using negatives? If not I can help you further
well I have a question and I need help with it I'm about to bumb it up
Misty will answer that for you
