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.

Yes and no to LQ's second reply. 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.
