    as you can see, your diagram does not align properly.

    try drawing it between [code] [ /code] tags (without the space of course) or copy an image of it

    ok. i am on a school pc and i do not have access to any drawing utilities, so i will try to describe in words what you must do.

    -a is the number that is the opposite of a. thus it is on the other side of 0 the same distance away as a is from 0

    likewise for -b

    |c| is the absolute value of c. whenever you see this, it basically means magnitude. so |c| is the distance between 0 and c. so put this on your diagram somehow

    likewise for |d|
