Absolute Value, huh?
welshfella
  • welshfella
subtract -15 from -12 and take the absolute value of the result
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes
welshfella
  • welshfella
the absolute value is always positive eg |-5| = 5
anonymous
  • anonymous
Remember that subtracting negative numbers from negative numbers would actually have an inverse effect and bring the number closer to zero rather than away from it.

  • welshfella
can you calculate -12 - (-15)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
its -3?

Actually, you are off by about 6. :/

-12 - (-15) = -12 + 15
welshfella
  • welshfella
recall - * - = +

-12 - (-15) is a double negative. Imagine taking the two negative signs, making one vertical and have one on top the other. It's actually -12 +15 now
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh
anonymous
  • anonymous
it's just 12+15 bc the absolute value of a number switches, it's sign. as in if it is positive it will become negative, and the other way around.

Sorry, but it goes against the code of conduct to just give the answer out. Plus I'm used to mental math so I'm not very good at explaining my solution.
