### Related Information

Question:

A
14.5

explanation

The distance between points A and B on a number line is the absolute value of the difference between those two points.

Distance is always a positive value. Evaluate the difference between the points and then apply the absolute value:

AB = |b − a| or |a − b|

= |−11.2 − 3.3|

= |−14.5|

= 14.5

Recall that the absolute value of a number is its distance from 0.
