The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero on the number line, regardless of its sign. It is denoted by two vertical bars surrounding the number. For example, the absolute value of 5 is written as |5|, which equals 5 because it is 5 units away from zero.

Here’s how to calculate the absolute value of a number:

For Positive Numbers:

The absolute value of a positive number is the number itself. For example,

|5| = 5.

For Negative Numbers:

The absolute value of a negative number is the positive equivalent of that number. To find the absolute value of a negative number, simply remove the negative sign. For example,

∣−5∣=5.

For Zero:

The absolute value of zero is zero. For example,

|0|=0.
