# According to the number line, what is the distance between points A and B?

The number line is a one-dimensional line that is used to represent real numbers from left to right in ascending order.

## Answer: According to the number line, the distance between points A and B is 14 units.

Let's understand the solution in detail.

**Explanation:**

In the given figure, point A is at -2, that is, 2 units to the left of zero.

Also, point B is at 12, that is, 12 units to the right of zero.

Now, since the number line is one-dimensional, we can find the distance between the points just by taking the difference between them

Therefore, the distance between A and B is equal to 12 - (-2) = 12 + 2 = 14 units.

### Hence, the distance between points A and B is 14 units.
