Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Integers are whole numbers that describe opposite ideas in mathematics.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Integers are indeed whole numbers that include both positive and negative numbers, as well as zero. They are used to represent quantities that can be counted or measured, such as the number of objects or the temperature. Therefore, the statement "Integers are whole numbers that describe opposite ideas in mathematics" is true.

    Absolute value measures the:

    • A.

      Opposite

    • B.

      Distance of a number to 0

    • C.

      GCF

    • D.

      LCM

    Correct Answer
    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.

    • A.

      Positive Number

    • B.

      Negative Number

    • C.

      0

    Correct Answer
    C. 0
    Explanation
    The answer is 0 because sitting at sea level means being at the same elevation as the surface of the sea, which is considered the baseline or reference point for measuring elevation. Therefore, the representation of sitting at sea level is 0, as there is no positive or negative deviation from this reference point.

    • C.

      0

    Correct Answer
    B. -10
    Explanation
    The integer -10 represents a loss of 10 pounds because when a value is negative, it indicates a decrease or loss. In this case, a loss of 10 pounds is represented by the negative value of -10.

      -8, -5, -3, -1

    Correct Answer
    D. -8, -5, -3, -1
    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.

      =

    Correct Answer
    C. =

    Arrange the given set of integers in ascending order. { -1, 3, -5, -7 }

    • A.

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

    • B.

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

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

    • D.

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

    Correct Answer
    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.
