Hi! I need some help with absolute value. First, I want to ask is that for absolute value, is that if the absolute value is |6| then would the answer be 6 or -6? I am really confused with this so if somebody could explain this to me, it would be a big help, thank you!

    The absolute value of |6| is 6. It is 6 places from 0.
