Use a number line to show the distance between the two given integers. Plot each integer as a point on the number line, and then find the distance between the two points. Write each situation as a subtraction problem using absolute value symbols.
Move the two points on the number line to the integers given in this problem.
How can you find the distance between them?
Use the same process as part (a).
This time the numbers are both on the same side of zero. But you can still use a similar process as in parts (a) and (b).
Use the following eTool to plot the integers.
