Which of the following expressions represents the distance between -3.9 and -4.7

| -3.9-4.7| PLEASE include explanation


  1. Answer:
    I believe it wouldn’t be either.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Distance is the difference between two positions. That is x1- x2  Since both numbers were negative, you would want the absolute value of one plus the other, because subtracting negative results in a positive. For this example the distance would look more like this:
    | -4.7 – ( -3.9 ) | = .8
