# Maya was 6th in line. Yosief was 6th from the end of line and there were 3 children between Maya and Yosief. How many children were there in the line?

There are either 7 or 15 children in the line.

It depends whether Yosief is ahead of or behind Maya in the line.

Consider the line of children. We are trying to find the number of children in the line.

Here it is critical to notice that we are not told whether Maya is ahead of or behind Yosief in the line. This will then lead to two possible solutions to this problem.

(i) Assume Yosief is ahead of Maya in the line.

(ii) Assume Yosief is behind Maya in the line.

Nice question! :-)

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
