Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0order of operations will have you compute the absolute value first :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes so you have 3 abs(2) since 2 is already a positive number taking the absolute value of 2 is just 2 so what is 3 x 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhhhh okay so once I solve the absolute value the "   " go away?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh my... I'm a mess.. you have 3 abs(2).. 2 is already a positive number inside the absolute value signs, so taking the absolute value of 2 will just be 2 and then you will have 3 x 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it goes according to the absolute value rules.. if you have abs(2) . taking that absolute value of a positive number is just that positive number abs(2) is just 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you have a negative number inside the absolute value, taking the absolute number will make it positive .. ex abs(5).. taking that absolute value will be 5 and yes the answer is 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohhhhh okay so wait if I have a positive number 7 will it turn negative when I take the absolute value?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no any positive number inside the absolute value signs.. will still be positive. all results of taking absolute values are positive regardless of the situation
