## 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

**Solution :**

(a) Number 5 is a positive number. Therefore, its absolute is the number itself, that is |5| = 5.
