Magnets - Attract or Repel

Instructions: Attractive forces pull the magnets toward each other. Repulsive forces push magnets away from each other. Magnets do not need to be touching for these forces to act on them. Whether magnets will attract or repel depend upon how they are positioned and the distance between them. Decide if each set of magnets will attract or repel.
