# Whats the absolute value of -6?

Apr 15, 2018

$6$

#### Explanation:

The absolute value is defined as the distance from a number to $0$, and so it is always positive.

So, the absolute value of $- 6$ will be the distance from $- 6$ to $0$ on the number line, and it is $6$.

Remember that,

$| \pm x | = x , x \setminus \in \mathbb{R}$
