Absolute value is looking for how far the number is away from 0. When we talk about how far, we are talking about distance. Distance can be positive or zero. So how far is 179 from 0? That will be the answer to the absolute value of 179. The opposite of a number is you just changing the sign in front of it. So the opposite of positive is negative. The opposite of negative is positive. So the opposite of 179 is _____?_____
