See explanation.

#### Explanation:

To calculate the value of $| w |$ first you have to calculate the value of expression $w$. If the value is positive, then the value of $| w |$ is the same, else if $w < 0$ then the value of $| w |$ is opposite $| w | = - w$.

Here we have:

$| 29 \frac{1}{2} | = 29 \frac{1}{2}$
