When a **student** first encounters the term “absolute value” in the **math assignment** he is supposed to do, it may be rather baffling, but in fact there isn’t anything really difficult about it. You may get all the necessary **help**, materials and consultations concerning your homework from our **service** if you need it, and from this short article you’ll get the answers to basic questions concerning absolute value.

Absolute value, or modulus, sometimes appears in mathematical **questions **and means the numerical value of a number without regard to its sign. E.g., number 10 is the absolute value of both 10 and -10. The term plays an important role in **solutions** of mathematical **problems** concerning distance, magnitude and norm and is applied in a wide variety of mathematical contexts (vectors, ordered rings, fields etc.). Thus, you may meet an **assignment** dealing with absolute value not only in **homework** during your years in **high school**, but **college** and **university** as well, if you choose to pursue mathematical career. Anyway, we are always ready to supply you with **help** and consultation on these and any other mathematical matters.

**Solvers** of absolute value equations are of course present on the Web, but even an automatic **online** program cannot serve as the substitute for actual knowledge. **Solving** the tasks in **assignments **dealing with absolute value is commonly associated with finding their absolute difference, the standard metric on the real numbers. The **answers** to this kind of problems are always absolute values of the numbers, i.e., |x-y|. Following rules may be of **help** when learning it, as well as during performing your **homework** exercises:

|x-y|≥0, for absolute value is never negative,

|x-y|=0 only when x=y,

|x-y|=|y-x|

This should make your **homework** easier. For further **help** on your **assignments** on absolute value, study other material present on our website.
