    That’s absolute value, and we’re going to learn that next week.

    I can still explain!

    Absolute value, or the lines, ||, means the distance from 0.
    For instance, |4| has a distance of 4 from 0, right? This also works for negative numbers. That means that |-4| is also 4 away from 0.

    This means |-196| is 196 spaces away from 0, and |324| is 324 spaces away from 0.

    An easy way to answer absolute value questions is by getting rid of the negative sign, but it is important to understand what it means.

    I’ll explain more when we meet next time, but this is what it means basically.

    Hopefully that helped! 🙂
