Since you are starting at -4,2 and going to 12, you are going in a positive direction, so your answer will be positive.

The formula is (final location) - (starting location)

                    =  (1.2) - (-4.2)

                    =  1.2 + 4.2

                    =  5.6

Hi there...

 

You started off well, but you came to the wrong conclusion.

 

"(-4.2 + 5.6)=1.4"

 

While...

"(1.2 - -4.2)=5.4"


In other words...

"(1.2 - 5.4)=-4.2"

 

Question...: "How can I get to 1.2 form -4.2?"
Answer...: "(-4.2 + 5.4)=1.2"

I hope that cleared things up a bit?

 

 

Kind regards
