# Evaluate −6 − (−2) A. -4 B. -8 C. 4 D. 12

The correct answer is A. -4.

When you subtract a negative, it is the same as adding a positive (the two negative signs cancel each other out). Therefore, we have:

-6 + 2 = -4

A. -4. when you subtract a negative you are actually adding so you would add 2 to -6 and end up with -4

Describe what happens to the graph of y=3x+4 when the slope is changed to 1/3

The graph is still a straight line, it still cuts the y-axis at the point y=4 ,
and it still slants up from left to right.

But it becomes a lot less steep.  The original line only had to go 4 inches
to the right in order to rise 1 foot.  The new line has to go 3-feet to the right
in order to rise 1 foot.

Calculate the median of the data set below. {3, 7, 9, 2, 5, 3, 4, 6, 1, 0}

The median is the number in the middle from least to greatest. so your answer would be 3.5 because 3 and 4 are in the middle. you add those and divide them by two and get your answer! hope this was helpful!
