Q:
# Micah and Joel each have a set of five rational numbers. Although their sets are not the same, their sets of numbers have absolute values that are the same. Show an example of what Micah and Joel could have for numbers. Give the sets in order and the absolute values in order.Enrichment Extension: Show an example where Micah and Joel both have positive and negative numbers.

Accepted Solution

A:

Solution :Ordering numbers means we have to arrange the numbers in ascending order or in a descending order i.e. from small value to big or from big value to small value.The order of the positive numbers is same as the order of the absolute values and their order of the negative numbers are opposite to the order of their absolute values.In the context, if Micah is having numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, then the order of the absolute values of the numbers would be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Similarly, if Joe is having numbers -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, then the order of their absolute value will be also 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.And if Micah have the numbers -5, -3, -1, 2, 4, then the absolute values of his numbers is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Also if Joe have numbers as -4, -2, 1, 3, 5, then his order of absolute values is also 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
