MA.6.NSO.1.4

Solve mathematical and real-world problems involving absolute value, including the comparison of absolute value.

Examples

Michael has a lemonade stand which costs $10 to start up. If he makes $5 the first day, he can determine whether he made a profit so far by comparing |-10| and |5|.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Absolute value situations include distances, temperatures and finances.

Clarification 2: Problems involving calculations with absolute value are limited to two or fewer operations.

Clarification 3: Within this benchmark, the expectation is to use integers only.
