Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The absolute value of a number represents the distance that number is from 0 on the number line ex: 5 = 5 because 5 is 5 units away from 0 22 = 22 because 22 is 22 units away from 0 So the absolute value of any number is NEVER negative because a negative distance doesn't make any sense.
