Q.6 Rita goes 20 km towards east from a point A to the point B. From B, she moves 30 km towards west along the same road. If the distance towards east is represented by a positive integer, then how will you represent her final position from A?


Answer :

Distances travelled towards east from point A will be represented by positive integer i.e. +20 km.
Distance travelled towards the west from point B will be represented by negative integer, i.e., —30 km.
Final position of Rita from A
= 20 km – 30 km = – 10 km
Hence, the required position of Rita will be presented by a negative number, i.e., -10.
