Step 1
To express the distance between the numbers -26 and -3 using absolute value.
To find the distance by evaluating the absolute value expression.
Step 2
The distance between the numbers −26 and −3 is given by,
d=|(26)(3)|
which is the expression of the distance between the numbers −26 and −3.
Now let us evaluate the distance.
d=|(26)(3)|=|26+3|=|23|=23
Therefore the distance between the numbers −26 and −3 is 23.
