Pg 194 in OG11:
Quote:
Of the five coordinates associated with points A,B,C,D,and E on the number line above, which has the greatest absolute value?

(can't draw the line, but these are the numbers each point is associated with)
A: -2
B: -1
C: 0
D: 1
E: 2


Answer is point A; the reason that OG gives is that A is farthest from 0 and b/c of that it has the greatest abs value - I feel kind of dumb, but how is 2 (point E) not the same distance from 0 as -2?

E is not 2. I looked at p.194 in OG11. E seems be ~1.8
A: -2
B: ~ -1.1
C: 0
D: ~ 1.1
E: ~ 1.8

Really? That is such an insane diagram then, don't you think? To me, it just looks like they're pointing to those numbers I listed. Can anyone else confirm that I'm not going crazy? lol :roll:

I looked at p 194 too and I agree with you, point E lies right above the 2.

I just checked in OG11 as well and agree with these numbers.
