This week, I have learned how to solve and find the absolute value of each number. There are several rules to absolute value.
- Negative numbers that are inside the absolute value becomes positive number.
- You do the calculation before changing the negative number to positive number.
- It is like brackets, however, the difference between brackets and absolute values is that every number that comes out from an absolute values becomes a positive.
How to solve an absolute value
To solve absolute value, you use BEDMAS
As an example let’s use
- We will do : 5-8
- Answer -3
Since the answer is negative and it is in the absolute value, it becomes positive.
Let’s try a harder question.
Let’s go through the steps
