See attachment.
The absolute value of a number is its distance from the origin on a number line. It is always positive, regardless of the sign of the number.
Absolute value is typically expressed using vertical bars or pipes on either side of the number. For example, the absolute value of -3 can be written as |-3| = 3.
Absolute value and magnitude are often used interchangeably, but there is a subtle difference. Magnitude refers to the size or amount of something, while absolute value specifically refers to the distance from a reference point.
Yes, absolute value can be applied to any real number, including negative numbers. The absolute value of a negative number is always positive.
Absolute value is commonly used in situations where distance or magnitude is important, such as in physics and engineering. It can also be used to represent differences between two values, such as in statistics or financial analysis.
