A chemistry teacher told his students that at ion is an atom that has an unequal number of electrons and protons, and that all ions have a charge. A negative charge means that the ion has more electrons than protons. A positive charge means that it has less electrons than protons.
Which ion in the table has a charge that is not the opposite of the charge of one of the other ions?
The normal low temperature during January for a town in Alaska is . Isabella represented this temperature with a number on a number line. If you plotted the opposite of that number on the number line, between which two integers would it lie?
This is a player’s scorecard after 5 holes in a golf championship.
Given that they were on par at the end of the ninth hole, which of these could have been their scores for the last 4 holes?
Note: To be on par, the sum of the scores must be equal to the sum of the par values.
