#### Answer

6

#### Work Step by Step

In order to find the distance between two points, we can find the absolute value of the difference of the numbers (taken in either order).
$A=-4$
$B=2$
$|(-4-2)|=|-(4+2)|=|-(6)|=|-6|$
The absolute value of a number $a$ is equal to $a$ if $a\geq0$ and is equal to $-a$ if $a\lt0$.
Therefore, the distance between the two points is 6.
$-6\lt0$, so $|-6|=-(-6)$
