abs(1.4)=1.4

abs(27)=27

abs(-6)=6

#2**0 **

If you want to solve an equation That has an absolute value in it, You can (and should) seperate your answer to two or more different answers. Heres an example:

lets say we want to solve |x+4|=5. Lets seperate our answer to two different cases:

1. x+4 is bigger than 0, meaning the equation is x+4=5 (x=1)

2. x+4 is smaller than 0, meaning the equation is -x-4=5 (x=-9)

i hope i helped!
