B) $M-L$

Work Step by Step

Look at the number line to find the value for each point. J=0.5 K=2 L=3 M=6 Substitute the values into each equation and simplify. a) $M\div L=6\div3=2$ b) $M-L=6-3=3$ c) $J+K=0.5+2=2.5$ d) $L-K=3-2=1$ Inspect the results to find the largest value. 3 is the largest result, so b is the correct answer.
