**Use absolute values to interpret real-world situations.**

a) The figure shows a section from Keith’s bank account statement.

As of May 31, Keith had $280 ¡n his bank account. On June 24, after he withdrew $490, he had -$170 in his bank account.

|-170| = 170

This means that Keith had overdrawn $170.

b) A dog is standing on a cliff, 35 feet above sea level. A dolphin is swimming 6 feet below sea level. An octopus is moving along the seabed, 40 feet below sea level.

You can use positive and negative numbers to show the elevation of the animals relative to sea level.

Dog’s elevation = 35 ft

Dolphin’s elevation = -6 ft

Octopus’s elevation = -40 ft

To decide which animal ¡s farthest from sea level, you do not need to think about whether the animals are above or below sea level. You can use absolute values to compare distances.

Distance of dog from sea level = |35|

= 35 ft

Distance of dolphin from sea level = |-6|

= 6 ft

Distance of octopus from sea level = |-40|

= 40 ft

The octopus is farthest from sea level.

Question 2.

On a certain day, the maximum recorded temperature was 15°C and the minimum recorded temperature was -8°C. How many degrees Celsius was the difference between the recorded maximum and recorded minimum temperatures?

Answer:

The maximum recorded temperature was 15°C.

The minimum recorded temperature was -8°C.

The difference between the recorded maximum temperature and recorded minimum temperature is 15°C + 8°C = 23°C

Explanation:

On a number line 15°C is 15 units after 0.

-8°C on a number line 8 units before 0.

So, the total difference is 15°C + 8°C = 23°C
