The positions of two divers from the water's surface after a dive are shown: Jack: −35 feet Simon: −40 feet Which inequality explains why Jack is closer to the surface than Simon? Because −35 > −40, so −35 is closer to 0 than −40 Because −35 < −40, so −35 is closer to 0 than −40 Because −35 > −40, so −35 is farther from 0 than −40 Because −35 < −40, so −35 is farther from 0 than −40

help plz

plz

Well both are negative numbers but lets do a example

is -35 closer of rather from 0 on the number line?

no idk im dumb

wait yes

\(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @tiktokstar wait yes \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) which is it closer or farther?

-35

is closer or farther from 0?

closer

\(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @tiktokstar closer \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) yes so if that is closer to 0 it would be the greater name due to value so -40 would be farther from 0 and would be less of a greater number due to value

(Hint) -35> -40 is correct with that being said cross off answer options B and D

my mom is going to yell at me so is it A

correct

thanks so much

np,make sure u close this question

ok I will
