See the entire simplification process below:

#### Explanation:

First, the absolute value function takes any positive or negative term and transforms it to its positive form. Therefore we can rewrite this expression as:

$\left\mid - \frac{9}{1000} \right\mid \to \frac{9}{1000}$

We can now divide $9$ by $1000$ giving:

$\frac{9}{1000} \to 0.009$
