The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero on a number line. Because a distance is represented by a positive number, the absolute value of a number will always be positive. The absolute value is indicated by two vertical lines on either side of the number: |#|. For example, |-10| = 10; |4.48|=4.48; |-78%|=78%; |2/3|=2/3; |(-7)/12|=7/12; |-30.54%| = 30.54%.
