## anonymous one year ago What is |–9|? I think it would be a the same thing right, but I just need some one to check it. :'3

hint: $\huge\rm \left| -x \right| = x$ $\left| x \right| =x$

this refers to absolute values :) So if you take the "absolute value of -9" You want to ask yourself : How many units (the distance) is -9 from the origin (ZERO) ?

So it would be positive nine?
