## What is the Absolute Value?

Absolute value is a number's distance from zero, or its non-negative value. Whether a number is negative or not, the absolute value is just the part without regard to the sign.

## Formula for Absolute Value

The formula for absolute value of a number is:

if\ x\geq0:\ |x| = x\\if\ x<0:\ |x| = x*(-1)

So, if a number is below zero multiply it by -1, or drop the sign in your head. Otherwise, pass it through un-adjusted.
