    make the number inside the | | positive and get rid of the | | example | 2 | - |-1| --> +2 - +1 or 2-1= 1

    first do the arithmetic inside the | | then make the answer positive (if it isn't already) and get rid of the | | then finish the problem

    not exactly. You keep the minus signs that are outside the | | example: - | -2| --> - (+2) = -2 the | -2| becomes +2, but the - outside makes it -2
