2 Answer

  • Answer:

    Choice B and Choise C.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Equivalent expressions are those expressions that have the same value but they look different.

    Given the following expression provided in the exercise:

    [tex]6.53 - (-4.11) + 7.92[/tex]

    You need to remember the multiplication of signs in order to find the equivalent expressions:

    [tex](+)(+)=+\\(-)(-)=+\\(-)(+)=-\\(+)(-)=-[/tex]

    Then:

    - Eliminating the parentheses, you get this equivalent expression:

    [tex]6.53 +4.11 + 7.92[/tex]

    - Since the mulplication of two negative signs gives yous a positive sign, you can rewrite the original expression in this form:

    [tex]-(-6.53)+4.11-(-7.92)[/tex]

    This is an equivalent expression to [tex]6.53 - (-4.11) + 7.92[/tex]
