1. What is the value of | 5 |?
Show me the answers!
Correct answer is option - 2
Absolute value of a number is the distance of the given number from ‘0’ on the number line and hence absolute value of a number is never a negative value.
Therefore, | 5 | = 5.
2. What is the value of | 24 |?
Show me the answers!
Correct answer is option - 2
Explanation:
Absolute value of 24 is the distance of ‘24’ from ‘0’ on the number line.
Therefore, | 24 | = 24.
3. The value of | -6 | is?
Show me the answers!
Correct answer is option - 1
Explanation:
Absolute value of -6 is the distance of ‘-6’ from ‘0’ on the number line.
Therefore, | -6 | = 6.
4. What is the value of | -100 |?
Show me the answers!
Correct answer is option - 4
Explanation:
Absolute value of -100 is the distance of ‘-100’ from ‘0’ on the number line.
Therefore, | -100 | = 100.
5. The value of | 10 – 9 | is?
Show me the answers!
Correct answer is option - 1
Explanation:
First we subtract the numbers inside the modulus and this gives: 10 – 9 = 1.
This implies: | 10 – 9 | = | 1 | = 1.
Therefore the answer is 1.
6. What is the value of | 7 + 5 |?
Show me the answers!
Correct answer is option - 5
Explanation:
First we add the numbers inside the modulus and this gives: 7 + 5 = 12.
This implies: | 7 + 5 | = | 12 | = 12.
Therefore the answer is 12.
7. What is the value of ‘x’ is | x | = 4?
Show me the answers!
Correct answer is option - 3
Explanation:
According to the definition of absolute value, the distance of ‘x’ from ‘0’ on the number line is given ‘4’.
So, hence the value of ‘x’ can be either ‘4’ or ‘-4’.
