How Many Different Integers can Have the Same Absolute Value?


Question: How many different integers can have the same absolute value?

The absolute value of a number is its distance from 0. Since the absolute value is a distance, the absolute value is always non-negative.

Answer: Two different integers can have the same absolute value

Let's look into an example to understand this

Explanation:

If 'a' is a positive integer and '-a' is its additive inverse, then both the integers have the same absolute value

The absolute value of a variable a is represented by |a| which is pronounced as "Mod x" or "Modulus of x."

So, two different integers can have the same absolute value

Example: 5 and -5 have the same absolute value i.e, 5

Thus, two different integers can have the same absolute value
