# How do you simplify abs(0)?

May 24, 2017

$\left\mid 0 \right\mid = 0$

#### Explanation:

Think of an absolute value as the distance from that value to zero.
So, $\left\mid x \right\mid$ would be the distance from $x$ to $0$.

Since, the distance from $0$ to $0$ is $0$
Therefore $\left\mid 0 \right\mid = 0$
