    No I thought when there are lines around the numbers every negative sign turns into a positive sign

    Calculate the inner expression first...if it's negative then it becomes positive. That's it.

    the lines turn "THE SOLUTION" of whatsoever is inside them positive so solve whats inside the lines, and if its negative it becomes positive for example |7-14| = |-7| = 7
