Step 1

Given:

The two numbers as -3.6 and -1.4

Step 2

Explanation:

Definition:

Distance between two numbers:

In terms of absolute value,

Let P and Q be any two real numbers

then,

$\left|P-Q\right|=$ The distance between P and Q

Step 3

The given two numbers as -3.6 and -1.4

Therefore,

Consider D be the distance between -3.6 and -1.4,

$D=\left|-3.6-(-1.4)\right|$

$D=\left|-2.2\right|$

D=2.2

Or

$D=\left|-1.4-(-3.6)\right|$

$D=\left|2.2\right|$

D=2.2

Here the change in the order of numbers does not effect the answer

Since both are same.

Therefore,

Absolute value between -3.6 and -1.4 is 2.2.

Hence the solution.
