This is a simple subtraction problem. All you have to do is subtract the distance between Adrian and school from the distance between Kevin and school. (Please don't forget unit conversions)

Okay. Lets get you a solution here.

 

Kevin lives \(2\) kilometers away from the school.

 

Converting this to meters, we get \(2000\) meters.

 

Adrian lives \(750 \) meters away from the same exact school.

 

As Chiron stated, this is simply a subtraction problem. Subtracting \(750\) meters from \(2000\) meters, we get \(1250\) meters

 

If the answer should be in kilometers, it is \(\boxed {1.25}\) kilometers.

If the answer should be in meters, it is \(\boxed {1250}\) meters.

 

Hope that helps! laugh
