The number line is scalable, meaning it can be any distance you want.
It is the number minus 0
... equal to the number.
The distance is 0.
A number's distance from 0 on a number line is called absolute value. The absolute value of 5 is 5 and the absolute value of -5 is also 5.
the absolute value
Its absolute value.
On a horizontal number line, the distance is 0!
0 and 4
From 0, it is one tenth of the distance from 0 to 1.
Its absolute value (or modulus).
Yes; it is a distance on a number line starting at 0 and going positive only.

The additive inverse.
At the number 2, draw a vertical line (perpendicular to the number line) and mark a distance of 1 unit on this line. Call this point X The distance from 0 to X is sqrt(5). Put a compass with its point at 0 and the pencil at X, and then draw an arc to cut the number line. That will be sqrt(5) on the number line.
6/10 of the distance from 0 to 1.
+4 and -4 both do.
The absolute value of a number is the distance the number is away from 0. For example, on the number line 2 is 2 units from 0 So |2|=2. But, -2 is also 2units away from 0 on the number line, so |-2|=2 as well. In general for any real number x , |x| is the distance from x to 0 on the number line. That helps us see why if x is a negative number, the distance from zero must still be positive. So for x<0, |x| is -x. For example, if x is -2, the absolute value is -(-2) which is positive 2. In general is a and b are real numbers |a-b|=|b-a| and both are the distance between a and b. Now let a =0 and we have |-b|=|b|
