Are sentinel values always negative?

The absolute value of any number is always positive. * * * * * The statement in the question is true; strictly speaking the answer is correct. The absolute value of 0 is …0, which is non-negative but is not positive. One exception is enough to falsify an "always".
The statement is true.
Yes. An absolute value is just that- the ultimate magnitude of a number, the number's distance from zero. Since distance is always positive, absolute value is always positive.…
A sentinel value is a value that is not supposed to change. It can be allocated along with, and used before the beginning and after the ending of a region of memory to detect …if the program logic modified memory outside of the intended region. Most compilers and run-time libraries will do this automatically when you do a debug compile/link.
the absolute value of any nuber is always positive even tho it may be negative inside. the only way to make it negative would be if there was a -l....l negative in front of th…e bars.
Negative numbers are always less than their absolute value.

No... the Zero 0 is not possitive,not negative so the absolute of zero is not
yes. This is because absolute value is in which you find how far away a number is from zero. This means that the absolute value is always positive.
Yes, absolute value is a number that is a whole number and it is non-negative.
No. The only time it's zero is if the number is zero. The absolute value of a number is "how far that number is from zero". So for example, the absolute value of -6 is 6. Abso…lute value is written with these two lines around the number, for example: |-6| means 'the absolute value of -6'. An easy way to know absolute value, is that its always the positive version of whatever number you are given. |-123012973|= 123012973. |-99|=99. |-5|=5. For positive numbers, the absolute value is the same as the number. |99|=99. |10,000,000|=10,000,000.
No, I believe it is always positive. |-5| = 5
Which of these expressions always represents a negative value Which of these expressions always represents a positive value?
None of "these" expressions represent anything!
Because that's the definition of "absolute value": The 'size' of the number, regardless of its sign.
I assume you're referring to a 1776-1976 US quarter. The reverseside shows a drummer boy, not a sentinel. If you found the coin in change, it's only worth 25Â¢. Anuncircula…ted one might sell for a couple of dollars, while a40%-silver proof or uncirculated one might retail for $4 or $5.
