Q:
# Subtract using the number line.−1 1/3−1/6A number line ranging from negative two to two with an arrow on both ends and tick marks every one sixth−1 5/6−1 1/2−1 1/61 1/2

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:[tex]-1\dfrac{1}{2}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:A part of the number line ranging from -2 to 2 with an arrow on both ends and tick marks every [tex]\dfrac{1}{6}[/tex] is shown in attached diagram.Rules:To add a number using number line, we have to move to the right, To subtract the number using number line, we have to move to the left.To subtract [tex]\dfrac{1}{6}[/tex] using number line, you have to move to the left one mark (because the distance between two consecutive marks is [tex]\dfrac{1}{6}[/tex]), so you'll be at point [tex]-1\dfrac{1}{2}[/tex]
