# How do you simplify 2 |-1/10| ?

$\frac{1}{5}$

#### Explanation:

We can rewrite $2 \left\mid - \frac{1}{10} \right\mid$ as

$2 \times \left\mid - \frac{1}{10} \right\mid$

The absolute value sign always returns a positive number, and so we get:

$2 \times \left(\frac{1}{10}\right)$

And now we can multiply like usual:

$\frac{2}{10} = \frac{1}{5}$
