Jun 18, 2018

$\sqrt{2}$

#### Explanation:

Absolute value of any number greater than zero is the number itself.

If the Number is lesser than zero(Negative number) it's absolute value will be $- 1 \times N u m b e r$

Example :
1. Absolute value of -5 is $| - 5 | \implies - 1 \times - 5 = 5$
2.Absolute value of 3 is $| 3 | = 3$ (Since 3 >0)

$\textcolor{red}{\sqrt{2}}$

Since $\sqrt{2} > 0$

$| \sqrt{2} | = \sqrt{2}$
