You might say, "it is just the amount of digits from zero, who cares....!" That is correct, but it is not the point. Finding the absolute value is a special math in working. It is used by canceling out a special technique. Absolute Value: | x | = sqrt(x^2) You see by cancelling the special use of square root and squaring, you get absolute value. | -20 | = sqrt((-20)^2) = sqrt(400) = 20 | 20 | = sqrt(20^2) = sqrt(400) = 20 Now, lets make this fun..... is |sin(x)| the same as sin(|x|) ? ....No.... sin(|x|) |sin(x)| Now, lets use a logrithm.... (1/2)log(x^2) is the same as log(x) ? .......... I think not! (1/2)log(x^2) log(x) This lesson has been accessed 3980 times.
