### Is the absolute value of a negative number always zero?

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. Absolute 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… Read More
