Absolute Value

Absolute Value basically means how far away from 0 the number is. For example there is – 5 and 3. By looking at it now the values say that 3 is greater than – 5 but if we did this inĀ absolute value it would be this: 5 and 3. Now which one is farthest from 0? You would say 5. Get how absolute value works, and what it is?

Oh. I just put my number between two lower case Ls like this : l8l

Like this? l0l.

Star: There was a clear and good description

Star: There was a clear example

Wish: You should tell what mathematical symbol shows absolute value
