**My answer option is – **

a. 1.5

b. 0.5

c. 1

d. 2

e. None of the above

Hey,

If the distance between two points say A and B is 10 and the distance between the next two points say B and C is (-9.5), then find the distance between the points A and C, where A as well as C are the two distinct endpoints.

Your Correct answer: **b**

**Details Explanation:**

According to the given question,

The distance between the points A and B = 10 units

The distance between the points B and C = -9.5 units

We have to find the distance between A and C which are the two distinct endpoints of

the line i.e., from this we can say that,

AB + BC = AC

∴ 10 + (-9.5) = AC

∴ AC = 0.5 units

**Hence, the correct answer is option b.**
