Here is my question: Use counters to model the difference -2-5. Here is my answer: <-- -5-- -4 -- -3 -- -2-- -1-- 0---1--2--3--4--5---> Start at -2 and count backwards 5 points and it will = -3. Is this correct? Thanks.

No.

If you start at -2 and go backwards 5 points, you won't end up at -3. Please try again.

I meant to say -7. Is this correct? Thanks.
