Absolute value measures the:

• A.

Opposite

• B.

Distance of a number to 0

• C.

GCF

• D.

LCM

B. Distance of a number to 0
Explanation
Absolute value measures the distance of a number from 0 on the number line. It gives the magnitude or size of a number without considering its sign. For example, the absolute value of -5 is 5, as it is 5 units away from 0 on the number line. Similarly, the absolute value of 5 is also 5, as it is also 5 units away from 0. Therefore, the correct answer is the distance of a number to 0.

Therefore, the representation of sitting at sea level is 0, as there is no positive or negative deviation from this reference point.

Explanation
The given answer is correct because it correctly arranges the numbers in ascending order from least to greatest. The numbers -8, -5, -3, and -1 are arranged in increasing order, with -8 being the smallest and -1 being the largest. Therefore, this sequence is arranged from least to greatest.

• C.

{ -1, -5, -7, 3 }

• D.

{ -5, -7, -1, 3 }

B. { -7, -5, -1, 3 }
Explanation
The given set of integers is {-1, 3, -5, -7}. To arrange them in ascending order means to sort them from smallest to largest. The correct answer is {-7, -5, -1, 3} because it follows the ascending order. -7 is the smallest integer, followed by -5, then -1, and finally 3, which is the largest integer in the set.
