So I started off by subtracting 1422 with 1016, then 1016 with 1202 and so forth... but I end up with the wrong answer? I don't understand what I'm doing wrong...

The right answer is 1743 miles and I got 1753 miles

**Using absolute value to determine distance**

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && (1422-1016)-(1016-1202)+(1202-918)+(918-496)+(496-51) \\ &=& 406 + 186 + 284 +422 +445 \\ &=& 1743 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
