Best Answer

on the real number line there are 2 values with |5|, ie +5 and -5.

on the complex plane there are an infinite set of values with an absolute value of 5, ie all the points of distance 5 from the origin.

Two (assuming you are talking about real numbers). In general, for any given positive number, there will be two real numbers whose absolute value is that given number. In the case of complex numbers, the answer is "infinitely many" - all the numbers on a circle centered on the origin, with that radius, have that absolute value.
