 Question 318838: Prove: For all real numbers a, b, and c, if a + c = b + c, then a = b. Click here to see answer by Fombitz(13828)

 Question 319194: Let symbol ~ be defined so that a~b equals the smaller of a-b and b-a. For all real numbers a and b, all of the following are true EXCEPT: a) a~b = b~a b) a~b = (-a) ~ (-b) c) a~b < 0 d) a~0 = 0 ~ (-a) e) If a>b>0, then (a~b)~b = -a The answer key tells me that the correct answer is C, but it seems to me that using any combination of numbers will always result in a negative response. Two negatives: -3 - (-5) = 2 *************** -5 - (-3) = -2 Two positives: 5-4=1 ************ 4-5= -1 One negative one positive: 5- (-3)= 8 **************** -3 - (5) = -8 Does 0 count as a real number? Is that why the solution is what it is? Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28555)
