What's the absolute value of 5.24? I keep forgetting how to solve an absolute value equation, so I need help with this. :T

    Absolute value simply means how far away a number is from 0. So any negative number becomes positive and all positive numbers stay the same

    Sorry I took long. Mom needed me. But I think I found out the answer. Would it be 5.24?

    Like I said, positive numbers stay the same and negative numbers just become positive. Very simple
