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

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

ya that makes sense thankyou :)

|-8|=8

|5|=5

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

|| is absolute value of a number
