1. The differnece of the absolute value of two numbers is positive meaning
/a/  /b/ > 0
I do not get that.... =/
HELP.
If absolute value of a is greater than the absolute value of b, then the difference has to be positive, greater than zero.
example: a= 7
b=4
abs a= 7
abs b= 4
abs a  abs b=3, or it is greater than zero.
