Yards are stupid, and that's a very poorly worded question.

I would say that as Liz walks from her house, the variable x assumes an infinite amount of values. That's because before she hit 1 yard, she was at 0.5 yards, and before that, she was at 0.25yards, and before that, 0.125 yards, etc.

Such a stupid fucking question, though. If it effects your grade, then bring it up with the professor, like WTF

what did the answer turn out to be? maybe 240 x 36 as there's 36 inches or maybe 240 * 36 * 16 as inches are measured in 1/16ths?

The variable x assumes an infinite number of values

The decimal can always grow larger. Into infinity

The answer was infinity

? Does nobody really know?
Look, OP, first of all there are 241 integers between 0 and 240. Similarly, there are 10 integers between 0 to 9 [0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9] so they were looking for 241 values. Everyone who said infinite is correct because there exists units of measurement less than one yard, like 0.5 yards or 0.0001 yards.

Its just a poorly written set of questions. A and B are wrong too, as there was no coordinate system defined. If I am 29 yards away from my house in the opposite direction of the bus stop, then I am 269 yards away from the stop. If I am 29 yards above my house, then I am about 242 yards away from the stop.

You need to try and think deeply about these things now because mathematics is not about numbers. Listen, it really isn't about numbers. Its about concepts; learn to conceptualize things so that one day when you take a higher level course it will be easy breezy. Good luck.

This question seems to assume there is a straight line between Elizabeths house and the bus stop, on which line she can only travel. Pretty dumb.

the variable x assumes x values noted in yards and is limited from 0 to 240

It is a real number, therefore it assumes infinite positions.
