How to Calculate Absolute Value?
The absolute of a number 'x' is represented as '|x|' or abs(x). The absolute value function is defined as follows.
|x| = x when, x \(\geq\) 0, and |x| = -x, when x < 0
Let us look at an example shown below to understand this better.
Solved Example :
Find the absolute of the following numbers.
(a) 5 (b) -6
(a) Number 5 is a positive number. Therefore, its absolute is the number itself, that is |5| = 5.
(b) Number -6 is a negative number. Therefore, its absolute is the additive inverse of the number, that is |-6| = 6.
Now, use our online absolute value calculator and find the absolute values of the following numbers.
- -1.5 and 0
- 50 and -1500
