An absolute value is a sign that looks something like this: |

When you have numbers in absolute values, you always make the number inside them positive.

 

Say you have something like this:

|3-5|

You first do the operations inside the absolute values, then you make it positive.

|-2|

and now you make it positive, so you get 

2

 

Also, if the number inside the absolute values is positive, you still leave it positive.
