Find .

Subtract the lesser
absolute value from the
greater absolute value.

Since the number with the
greater absolute value is
–14, the sum is negative.

Stocks In the past year, a publishing company’s stock
went from \$52.08 per share to \$70.87 per share. Find
the change in the price of the stock.
Explore The stock price began at \$52.08 per share and
ended at \$70.87. You need to determine the
change in price for the year.
Plan Subtract to find the change in price.

ending price minus beginning price

70.87 52.08
Solve

To subtract 52.08,

Subtract the
absolute values.

The absolute value
of 70.87 is greater,
so the result is
positive.
Answer: The price of the stock changed by \$18.79.

Examine The problem asks for the change in a stock’s
price in the past year. Since the change in price
was positive, the price increased. This makes
sense since the ending price is more than the
beginning price.
Stocks The stock in a company went from \$46.98 to
\$35.09 over a one-month period. Find the change in
price for the stock.

Stocks The value of a company’s stock dropped by
\$1.25 per share. By what amount did the total value of
the company’s stock change if the company has
issued 500,000 shares of stock?
To find the change in the total value of the company’s
stock, multiply the price lost per share by the number
of shares.
