  1. Answer:
    B
    Step-by-step explanation:
    The symbol “|” means absolute value so for example |-12| is not equal to -12 it is equal to just 12.
    A would be incorrect because |-282| is equal to 282 and 282 is greater than 279.
    B would be correct because 279 is less than 282
    C would be incorrect because 279 is not equal to 282, 279 is equal to 279.
    D would be incorrect because -282 is not greater than 279
