No.They must have the same numeral, but can have opposite signs. So, for example, the numbers 5 and -5 are clearly not the same, but the absolute value of either number is 5.

If the signs are the same, add the absolute values and keep the sign. If the signs are different, subtract the lesser absolute value from the greater absolute value and keep the sign of the number with the greater absolute value.

They are the same. the absolute value is always positive

yes.

No. That is only true for non-negative numbers. The value of a negative number, such as -3 , is negative 3. But its absolute value is 3.

yes

The absolute value is always non-negative. So, the absolute values of zero and positive integers are the same as the numbers. However, the absolute values of negative integers are their additive inverses or additive opposites (or positive equivalents).Thus, for example, abs(-3) = +3

Yes, a positive integer and its negative have the same absolute value. For example, +5 and -5 have the same absolute value.

Yes, a positive integer and its negative have the same absolute value. For example, +5 and -5 have the same absolute value.

All numbers have opposites that are the same as their absolute values.

Additive opposites MUST have the same absolute values.

The absolute value of the answer is the difference between the absolute values of the two numbers and the sign associated with it is the same as that of the number with the greater absolute value.

They will be the same absolute value with opposite signs. They don't even have to be integers.

this is integers. the answer is do your homework by yourself..
