## What is the absolute value of -(- 6?

Explanation: The absolute value is defined as the distance from a number to 0, and so it is always positive. So, the absolute value of − 6 will be the distance from − 6 to 0 on the number line, and it is 6.

## What is the absolute value of (- 5?

For example, the absolute value of 5 is 5, and the absolute value of − 5 is also 5.

## How do you do an absolute number?

The most common way to represent the absolute value of a number or expression is to surround it with the absolute value symbol: two vertical straight lines.

- |6| = 6 means “the absolute value of 6 is 6.”
- |–6| = 6 means “the absolute value of –6 is 6.”
- |–2 – x| means “the absolute value of the expression –2 minus x.”

## Can two numbers have the same absolute value?

Hence if domain is real number for each absolute value there are two different numbers one can have with same absolute value. However, if domain is Complex numbers, absolute value of a number a+bi is √a2+b2 and for each absolute value there could be infinite different numbers with same absolute value.

## How do you do absolute value inequalities?

Isolate the absolute value expression on the left side of the inequality. If the number on the other side of the inequality sign is negative, your equation either has no solution or all real numbers as solutions. Use the sign of each side of your inequality to decide which of these cases holds.

## What is the rule of absolute value?

In mathematics, the absolute value or modulus of a real number x, denoted |x|, is the non-negative value of x without regard to its sign. Namely, |x| = x if x is positive, and |x| = −x if x is negative (in which case −x is positive), and |0| = 0.

## What is the absolute value of 11?

The absolute value of any positive number is the number itself, so 11 has 11 as an absolute value. Also, the absolute value of a negative number is its (positive) opposite, so also has 11 as an absolute value.

## What is the value of negative 5?

The absolute value of – 5: |− 5 | is the absolute value of a negative number. To find the answer to this, you simply remove the negative sign, so the answer is 5.

## What is the absolute value of 8?

Absolute value is always nonnegative, since distance is always nonnegative. For example, the absolute value of 8 is 8, since 8 is 8 units from 0 on the number line. The absolute value of − 8 is also 8, since − 8 is also 8 units from 0 on the number line.

## Why do we need absolute value?

When you see an absolute value in a problem or equation, it means that whatever is inside the absolute value is always positive. Absolute values are often used in problems involving distance and are sometimes used with inequalities. That’s the important thing to keep in mind it’s just like distance away from zero.
