 The absolute value of a number is the distance between that number and 0 on a number line. For the absolute value of x we write |x|

Taking the absolute value of a number results in whatever the “positive version” of that number is.

For example, the absolute value of -3 is |-3| = 3.

Note :Absolute Value Does Not Exactly “Make Everything Positive”

For example, |3-6| \neq |3+6|

|3-6| = |-3| = 3
