@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).
