## What are numbers with the same absolute value?

Two numbers are opposites if they have the same absolute value but different signs. Opposites are the same distance from 0 on a number line, and they are on opposite sides of 0. The opposite of 0 is 0.

## What are absolute values equal to?

Absolute value equations are equations where the variable is within an absolute value operator, like |x-5|=9. The challenge is that the absolute value of a number depends on the number’s sign: if it’s positive, it’s equal to the number: |9|=9. If the number is negative, then the absolute value is its opposite: |-9|=9.

**Can there be 2 absolute values?**

What if there are two absolute-value expressions? Can we use the same method? Yes, but only if there are exactly just the two absolute values, so that we can “isolate” each of them, one on either side of the equation.

**What number has the same absolute value as 4 upon 3?**

the number having same absolute value as 4/3 is -4/3.

### What has the same absolute value as 3?

The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero on the number line. Therefore, the absolute value of 3 is 3, and the absolute value of -3 is also 3. A positive number and its negative have the same absolute value. It is symbolized as |x|, and |-x| has the same value.

### What’s the absolute value of 4?

The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero on a number line . For instance, 4 and −4 have the same absolute value ( 4 ).

**What is the least absolute value?**

Least absolute deviations ( LAD ), also known as least absolute errors ( LAE ), least absolute value ( LAV ), least absolute residual ( LAR ), sum of absolute deviations, or the L1 norm condition, is a statistical optimality criterion and the statistical optimization technique that relies on it.

**How do you solve an absolute value expression?**

The general steps for solving an absolute value equation are: Isolate the absolute value expression. Solve the positive “version” of the equation. Solve the negative “version” of the equation by multiplying the quantity on the other side of the equals sign by −1.

#### What is absolute value explanation?

Absolute value is a term used in mathematics to indicate the distance of a point or number from the origin (zero point) of a number line or coordinate system. This can apply to scalar or vector quantities. The symbol for absolute value is a pair of vertical lines, one on either side of the quantity whose absolute value is to be determined.

#### What is the absolute value of 18?

The absolute value of 18 is the distance between 18 and 0 on a number line. See illustration below where x is 18: Since the distance between 18 and 0 on a number line is 18, we get the answer as follows: |18| = 18. Note that the absolute value of 18 can also be written as abs(18) which may be useful to know if you have a good calculator.
