 Question 259193: is the absolute value of any number the same as the absolute value of its additive inverse Answer by stanbon(57307)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!is the absolute value of any number the same as the absolute value of its additive inverse ---- Yes, because absolute value is distance. A number and it additive inverse are the same distance from zero: one is that distance to the right, the other is that distance to the left of zero. --------- |a-0| = |0-a| ---- Cheers, Stan H.
