A number line.

A number line can have both positive and negative numbers. You can put the number line in any position, but often it is represented so that numbers to the right of zero are positive, and numbers to the left of zero, negative.

The only number whose absolute value is zero is zero. This is because a number's absolute value is its distance from zero on the number line.

The distance between two numbers is the absolute value of their difference.

Both of them are 6.

A number's distance from 0 on a number line is called absolute value. The absolute value of 5 is 5 and the absolute value of -5 is also 5.

Yes. The absolute value of two numbers is ALWAYS positive. This is because absolute value means "the number of spaces a number is from zero on a number line.

The only number whose absolute value is zero is zero. This is because a number's absolute value is its distance from zero on the number line.

the number from zero (the distance) is called incounting numbers

zero is infact a number not a placeholder contrary to popular belief. many people may argue that zero is the bridge between the positives and the negatives upon the infinite number line. However Zero has a value just as any other number on the number line. zero has a value of zero. this is not an absess of value but the very much real value of zero. if a certain representation has a value on the number line it must therefore be a number. the socalled bridge between the positive and negative numbers is the line upon which all numbers of infinite value are settled.

No, not necessarily. A number line can start and end wherever you need it. But if you are including both positive and negative numbers, then there needs to be a position for zero.
