Order the values from least to greatest. 1, |5|, 4, |-8|, -2
Correct Answer
C. -2, 1, 4, |5|, |-8|
Explanation
The given answer correctly orders the values from least to greatest. The first number is -2, which is the smallest value. Then, the next number is 1, followed by 4. The fourth number is |5|, which is equal to 5, and finally, the largest value is |-8|, which is equal to 8.

The freezing point is the temperature at which a liquid becomes a solid. The freezing point of butter is 35 degrees and the freezing point of the mercury is -39 degrees. Which is closer to the freezing point of water at 0 degrees. (All temperatures are in Centigrade).
Correct Answer
A. Butter
Explanation
The freezing point of water is 0 degrees Celsius. Since the freezing point of butter is 35 degrees Celsius, it is closer to the freezing point of water compared to mercury, which has a freezing point of -39 degrees Celsius.
3.
True or False. |-3| < 3
Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
The absolute value of -3 is equal to 3, which is not less than 3. Therefore, the statement |-3| < 3 is false.

Temperatures in the Gobi Desert reach -40 degrees(F) in the winter and 90 degrees (F) in the summer. Find the range of the temperatures. In this case, find the expression that results in correct range value as a positive number.
Correct Answer
B. 90 - (-40)
Explanation
The correct answer is 90 - (-40). This expression calculates the range of temperatures by subtracting the lowest temperature (-40) from the highest temperature (90), resulting in a positive number.
6.
Evaluate the expression 4 - a - c when a = -2 c = 5
Correct Answer
C. 1
Explanation
The expression 4 - a - c can be simplified by substituting the given values of a and c. So, 4 - (-2) - 5 becomes 4 + 2 - 5 which equals 1. Therefore, the correct answer is 1.
7.
True / False: Absolute Value is the distance between a number and 0 (zero) on the number line.
Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because the absolute value of a number is the distance between that number and zero on the number line. It is always a positive value, regardless of whether the original number is positive or negative. For example, the absolute value of -5 is 5, as the distance between -5 and 0 is 5 units. Similarly, the absolute value of 5 is also 5, as the distance between 5 and 0 is also 5 units.

-12 - (-27) is less than zero.
Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
The expression -12 - (-27) is equivalent to -12 + 27, which equals 15. Since 15 is greater than zero, the statement " -12 - (-27) is less than zero" is false.
9.
Evaluate the expression (simplify). -6 + (-11) - 2
Correct Answer
D. -19
Explanation
The given expression is -6 + (-11) - 2. To simplify this expression, we can start by adding the two negative numbers -6 and -11, which gives us -17. Then we subtract 2 from -17, resulting in -19. Therefore, the correct answer is -19.
10.
Evaluate the expression. -5 - (-5)
Correct Answer
A. 0
Explanation
The expression -5 - (-5) can be simplified by applying the rule of subtracting a negative number, which is equivalent to adding the positive number. Therefore, -5 - (-5) becomes -5 + 5, which equals 0.
