He showed that the distance is 10 and that 1/5 of 10 is 2. But now you have to move 2 units from 4 towards -6. Which, coincidentally, takes you to 2. So LQ's answer is correct, just needed to show you one more step.]]>https://www.mathisfunforum.com/profile.php?id=43782006-12-27T04:58:07Zhttps://www.mathisfunforum.com/viewtopic.php?pid=54255#p54255<![CDATA[Re: Find the number]]>distance(4 --> -6) = 1/5(diff(4,-6)) = 1/5(10) = 2 (Sorry for ending there, I continued until I found the right answer)

That's the distance traveled from 4 against -6.

position(4 d--> -6) = 2.
