    absolute value makes and/or keep everything positive bc it measures the distance from 0 on number line

    "keep everything positive" , not the best way to explain

    The concept of absolute value has many uses, but you probably won't see anything interesting for a few more classes yet. There is a technical definition for absolute value, but you could easily never need it. For now, you should view the absolute value of a number as its distance from zero.
