-11 is 11 units away from zero on a number line.
A number's distance from zero on a number line is its magnitude or "absolute value."absolute value or magnitude.absolute value
The distance from zero on a number line is called the absolute value.
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 absolute value is its distance from zero on a number line. So, for an example, the absolute value of both +6 and -6 is 6, as both values are 6 units away from zero although they are in opposite directions.
The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero on a number line.
The distance the number is from zero. For example, + 19 is 19 units of length on the positive side of the number line , to the right of the zero position. - 19 is 19 units of length going the other way, to the left of the zero position on a number line.
