Q:

What is the distance between points A and B? A number line going from negative 8 to positive 8. A closed circle appears at negative 5 and is labeled A. A closed circle appears at positive 1 and is labeled B. An orange arrow line extends the length of the number line and contains points A and B.

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:6 unitsStep-by-step explanation:Find the diagram attached, from the diagram , it can be seen that point A is at -5 and point B is at 1.In order to get the distance between points A and B, we will take the difference between the two pointsDistance AB = B - AGiven that B 1 and A = -5AB = 1 -(-5)The product of two negative sign will give a positive sign. Hence the equation will become;AB = 1+5AB = 6 unitsHence the distance between points A and B is 6 units
