Absolute Value in its most simplest terms, is the distance between a number and zero . This essentially removes the notion of positive and negative numbers. 5 has an Absolute Value of 5, just as -5 has an Absolute Value of 5. Though one is positive, and the other is negative, they are equidistant from zero, and have equal Absolute Values.
