Kirk got to compete in the bonus round of a game show, scoring 700 points on the world history questions and -400 points on the general questions. What was his score for the bonus round?

Expert Answer:

Score on world history questions = 700

Score in general questions = - 400

Score for bonus round is given by 700 + (- 400)

To solve this using number line, start with 700 and move 4 steps to the left.



After moving, we reach at 300, so 700 + (- 400) = 700 - 400 = 300
