    so anyway, a negative number inside the absolute value will become positive if we already have a positive number inside the absolute value then the result is positive.

    The absolute value is just the distance away from 0 it is, so if its [5] its is 5 away, if its [-5] it is still 5 away. So its just the number missing the + and - signs

    It's still 13 since it's no negative and there is nothing else in there that can possibly change the number.
