d. It is the same distance from zero as the number she tells you
Case 1: Let Shanika thought a positive rational number
Let the number that Shanika thought be c.
Then, the distance of it from zero = |c - 0| = c.
But, the number she told = -c
The distance of -c from zero = |0--(-c)| = c
Case 2: Let Shanika thought a negative rational number
Let the number that Shanika thought be -c (c > 0).
Then, the distance of it from zero = |0--(-c)| = c.
But, the number she told = c
The distance of -c from zero = |c - 0| = c
In both cases, the number she thought is the same distance from zero as the number she tells us
easy. i've done this with my family before. take a bike or skateboard to the park with your family. maybe invite some friends over, or just spend the day at their house. this is obviously a good time to finish any home-work if you have any left. you can make a few extra bucks by doing some extra chores done (just make sure to tell your parents about it first;)). i hate not having technology, but i mean it's not the end of the world.

Nowadays, we rely on technology heavily. Because of this, it can be difficult to imagine what we would do without it. However, avoiding technology for a few days can be an enriching experience.
There are many things that you can do with your family without the use of technology. For example, if you are at a different location and there is nature around, you can go camping. You can make a fire to cook, swim, look at the stars and hike. If you are in the city, you can go to a park and read, or play a sport. You can also take advantage of this experience to talk more to your family and get to know them better.
One to one or many to many communication.
Technology has created a platform for online and on-the-go entertainment, conversation, recreation and games etc. But in a location with zero technology, there is a need to reverse back to traditional communication and social interaction.
Besides sleeping and eat, one to one communication with a relative or a group discussion with the family is made. This is like a form of multicast communication. Games and recreational activities would be conducted, like board games, swimming, dancing, singing etc.
The correct answer is A) it would be to the left of zero on the number line.
If you give the number a, the reciprocal would be 1/a. Is that what you mean?
Or do you mean "the number with opposite sign?" If you give the number b, "the number with opposite sign" would be -b.
Consider both cases. Choose a rational number (such as 7/8). Find the reciprocal of this number. Find the number with opposite sign of this number.
a rational number is any number that can be written as a fraction.
lets say she picked 1/4...the opposite would be -1/4...both are equidistant from 0.
