@readingallday Absolute value is a number's distance from 0. This is why positive numbers stay positive, and negative numbers become positive in these problems, as we are just counting how many units a number is from zero. Ex: (-7 is 7 units away from 0 & 7 is also just 7 units away from 0 but in opposite directions).
@sqwishy Thank you so much... My favorite thing to do is answer questions from you guys. 🙂 It's a lot of fun to figure out where the "stuck" point is in a piece of logic 😜
