    Everything thing in the absolute values symbols gets turned into a positive as far as I know. So if you turn the numbers inside those into positive numbers then can you see which is the right one?

    If it hasn't already been said, the bars on the sides of a number make it positive.

    However, if there is a negative sign outside of the lines, that makes it negative again.

    You make the numbers inside the bars positive then you can get rid of them. if there is a sign outside of the bars apply that.

    Ok. So draw a horizontal line, and then a little circle in the middle of it. Like this: |dw:1441990940438:dw|

    The space to the left of the circle is negative, and the space to the right of the circle is positive.

    There's an issue with that answer. The bars outside of -5 make it positive remember? So it'd be the greatest instead of the least.
