# What is the absolute value of 3/2?

May 24, 2018

That would be $\frac{3}{2}$.

#### Explanation:

Absolute value means using a modulus function which would turn any number inside of the function to a positive number.

Since $\frac{3}{2}$ is already positive, $\frac{3}{2}$ is the absolute value of $\frac{3}{2}$. If you were asked for the absolute value of $- \frac{3}{2}$, it would be $\frac{3}{2}$ too since the modulus function would turn $- \frac{3}{2}$ to positive.

$| \frac{3}{2} | = \frac{3}{2}$

$| - \frac{3}{2} | = \frac{3}{2}$
