## On a number line, a number, b, is located the same distance from 0 as another number, a, but in the opposite direction. The number b varies

Question

On a number line, a number, b, is located the same distance from 0 as another number, a, but in the opposite direction. The number b varies directly with the number a. For example b = 2; when a = -2 which equation represents this direct variation between a and b? O b= -a O-=-a Ob-a=0 Ob(-a) = 0

Answer:b = -a

Step-by-step explanation:If a and b are both positions from 0, we need to write an equation that relates both positions. The problem is explaining that the position of a is opposite to the position of b.

If a = 2; b = -2. If a = 1000; b = -1000.

If a = -x; b = x. Then:

-a = x

-a = x and b = x, that means:

b = -a
