# What is the absolute value of a number

## How do you find the absolute value of a number?

The absolute value of a number is the number’s distance from zero, which will always be a positive value. To find the absolute value of a number,

**drop the negative sign if there is one to make the number positive**. For example, negative 4 would become 4.## What is the absolute value of |- 4?

Also, the absolute value of

**-4**is written as |-4|. As we discussed earlier, the absolute value results in a non-negative value all the time. Hence, |4|=|-4| =4.## What is the absolute value of 17?

+17

Absolute value notation is usually taught as, “If you see a negative sign in front of the number, change it to a plus sign. If you see a plus sign, leave it alone.” In other words, absolute value makes numbers positive. The absolute value of -17 is

**+17**.## What is the absolute value of 8?

8

The absolute value of 8 is

**8**.## What is the absolute value of |- 3?

3

For example, the absolute value of 3 is

**3**, and the absolute value of −3 is also 3. The absolute value of a number may be thought of as its distance from zero.## What’s the absolute value of -| 3?

3

The absolute value of |3| is

**3**.## What is the absolute value of -| 14?

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero. The distance

**between −14 and 0 is 14**.## What is the absolute value of |- 28?

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero. The distance

**between −28 and 0 is 28**.## What is the absolute value of |- 9?

The absolute value of −9 is

**9**.## What is the absolute value of -| 7?

|-7| = 7 means the absolute value of –

**7 is 7**.## What’s the absolute value of 23?

So, when we are asked to find the absolute value of a negative number, the answer will be positive.

**-23 is 23 units apart from 0**, meaning that the answer to this question is simply 23.## What is the absolute value of 6i?

## What is the absolute value of 20?

|20| =

**20**; Absolute value of 20 is 20.## What is the absolute value of 25?

5 units

The distance from 25 to 0 is

**5 units**. That means the absolute value of 25 is 5 .## What is the absolute number of 15?

We can see the distance between this number and the zero is $15$ unit, and according to the absolute value definition we know that it is the distance from zero and the integer. Therefore, the absolute value of

**$ – 15$**is $15$, which can also be represented as $\left| { – 15} \right| = 15$.## What is the absolute value of L 5l?

## What is the absolute value of |- 30?

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero. The distance

**between −30 and 0 is 30**.## What is the absolute value of 54?

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero. The distance

**between 0 and 54**is 54 .
