# What is the absolute value of -10 and 10?

Nov 11, 2014

Remember that the absolute value sign is a negative sign eraser, so we have:

$\left\{\begin{matrix}| - 10 | = 10 \\ | 10 | = 10\end{matrix}\right.$

I hope that this was helpful.

The absolute value is how far away a number is form zero
|10| and |-10|
so 10 is 10 values away from zero
and -10 is 10 values away from zero
so:
$| 10 | = 10$
$| - 10 | = 10$
