 Signed numbers Opposite and absolute value Opposite Two numbers, a and b are said to be opposite if a+b=0 . Thus (+6) y (-6) are opposite numbers, because (+6) + (-6) = 0. The opposite of a number is indicated by Op(-4) = 4 Absolute value Absolute value is the unsigned or undirected value of a number. Absolute value is indicated by two vertical lines surrounding the number ||. The absolute value of -7 is 7. Thus, |-7| = 7 The absolute value of +5 is 5. Thus, |+5| =5 By the absolute value of a number is meant the distance of the number from the origin on a number line. Find the opposite and the absolute value of ( +19 ) Opposite = Absolute value =
