The purpose of finding the opposite of a number is to find its absolute value. This is how much less or greater it is than zero and how much it needs to return to zero.

That is called the difference between them.

When a line segment connecting two points is horizontal the length of the segment can be found by finding the absolute value of the difference in x-coordinates of the two points.

The question cannot be answered because it is based on the incorrect premise that it is not necessary in the second case.
