3-35.

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. 3-35 HW eTool (CPM). Homework Help ✎

1. $7$ and $4$

Move the two points on the number line to the integers given in this problem.
How can you find the distance between them?

$\left|7-4\right|=3$

1. $5$ and $−2$

Use the same process as part (a).

1. $-1$ and $-3$

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.
