    all you need to know to solve these questions is that |-a|=a |a|=a

    apply that rule of modulus and you should solve it

    |-10| mean that how far the value is from zero so from this instance its 10 units, so basically drop the negatives signs.

    yep so |...| is simply called the 'modulus of what ever is in between these vertical lines so all we do is take the positive number inside the lines

    the value for |1| is simply the positive value of 1, which is 1. the value for |-1| is simply the positive value of the number, which too is 1
