30. In math, if a problem asks for the absolute value of a number, it'll always be the positive form of that number.

Yes. nonzero number: -4, -0.5, 5, pi, 30 absolute number: |-4| = 4 |-0.5| = 0.5 |5| = 5 |pi| = pi |30| = 30

The easiest way to do this is to temporarily ignore the signs and then subtract the smallest from the largest. Since they are opposite signs, they cancel each other out (meaning you'd subtract rather than add). Then add whichever sign of the largest starting number to the answer.For instance, take -52 and 12. Since the signs are opposite, adding turns into subtraction. Put another way, adding the 12 to the -52 makes the -52 less negative (more positive). So subtract 12 from 52 and you get 40. Since -52 has a greater absolute value than 12, the answer gets the negative sign, thus you have -40. So adding the 12 makes the -52 smaller (less negative) by 12.Or to demonstrate the other way, take 30 and -10. That is easy, since when you add a negative, you are subtracting. So 30 minus 10 is 20. Since the largest starting number is positive, you don't have to worry about the sign when you are done.

Any two numbers that multiply to 30, one having a negative sign before it. So, the list of possible integers: -1, 30 (negative 1, 30) -2, 15 (negative 2, 15) -3, 10 (negative 3, 10) -5, 6 (negative 5, 6) 1, -30 (1, negative 30) 2, -15 (2, negative 15) 3, -10 (3, negative 10) 5, -6 (5, negative 6) If both of the numbers were negative, however, this would produce a positive answer.

the difference is negative 5 and the difference between 30 and 25 is 5. Some people look at the difference as absolute value so we have |25-30|=|30-25|=5

The absolute value of a fraction would be done by this:ex. 3/10 is equivalent to .30 or just .3 the absolute value of .3 is .3 because an absolute value is the number of spaces it takes to get to zero on a number line. KILL ME

-30 is the same as -(30) based on the order of operations. 30 is 1 and the opposite of it is -1. (-3)0 is taking the whole expression to the 0 power. Anything to the 0 power is 1.

Velocity is a vector, which means it has a direction, but speed isn't. Speed is the absolute value of velocity. Velocity can be negative, meaning that the speed is opposite to the direction that you're calling the positive direction.

You just take the sign away. Thus, -30 becomes 30.If you use a computer programming language, multiplying by -1, or putting a "-" in front of an expression, will change the sign.In math, if you have an expression, for example x, or x - 10, you can't just put "-" in front of it to get the absolute value; you don't know whether the entire expression is positive or negative, unless you know the value of x. In this case, putting vertical bars will specify an absolute value: | x - 3 | means that if x - 3 is negative, you want it converted to positive. In solving equations, you often have to consider both cases; that x - 3 (for example) is positive, and that it is negative.
