/-8/+/5/ Simplify??? the lines are supposed to go straight but ya i cant find how to do this or the answer please HELP!!!

  • Math -

    The -8 would be 8 because anything outside the absolute value is positive. I get 13 at least the way I learned it.

  • Math -

    ya that makes sense thankyou :)

  • Math -

    |-8|=8

    |5|=5

    |-8|+|5|=8+5=13


    || is absolute value of a number

    On en.wikipedia you can read article about absolute value.
